• Improv Night - Focus on Object Work

    The Practice Space

    We're going to do a workshop type of event this evening focusing on improvised "object work." This is the concept of interacting with the imaginary world in which you're improvising. Tired of doing improvised scenes where it's just two of you standing there and talking? This should help spice things up! For example, if your scene takes place in a restaurant, you have plenty of objects around you that you can play with to make your improv more visually interesting. Fiddle with a salt shaker, interact with a cash register, flip some burgers, etc. You're only limited by your imagination! We'll do a series of exercises aimed to help both newcomers to improv, and those with more experience, to better understand and practice the idea of object work.

  • Bonus improv session!

    Graduate Admissions trailer Lipscomb University

    Can't wait until next week to do some improv?? Join me this Wednesday to satisfy your improv tooth! I'm not entirely sure what we'll do, other than have fun! But we'll do some of the standard games that Darin usually does and then play it by ear from there. Ooo! We have to play Big Booty because I love that one! But I don't really remember how to play it so y'all will have to refresh my memory. LOL I'm going to add a picture of the campus map in the pics for this Meetup to help you get to the right building. If you get confused, just text me at[masked]. I'll have some kind of "improv!" sign in front of the building, and a Santa hat on the door. :-) You can also access the complete campus map here: https://www.lipscomb.edu/uploads/14890.pdf

  • Election Day-inspired Improv!

    The Practice Space

    We're doing a very special improv meetup for Election Day! We're going to use oddball trivia about presidents and Tennessee's political past to inspire a range of improvised scenes and games this evening. This election will likely be very contentious, so we all may need a brief respite from it to laugh and relax. Whether you need to forget your sorrows or breathe a sigh of relief after a stressful day, we'll enjoy an art form that encourages fun and support of one another. (So, please, leave any political arguments at home and save them for your favorite political meetup group!)
