I have always loved comedy, and I always thought it would be fun to be an actor. I think with a little time and effort, I could be halfway decent, but there is one thing I will never master--improv. There is something very intimidating about going into something without any prior practice. I like to have all my ducks lined up in a neat little row. Not having that throws my whole world into chaos.
Now, at the library where I work, I've given impromptu classes (like, I prep beforehand, but I don't have a specific speech planned out). But, all the same, I don't think I could get up on a stage and be funny without some proper preparation.
Day 3: Franken-Improv
For today's posting, I wanted to do something a bit funny. So, I've included here two Frankenstein-themed improv skits. The first is from Who's Line is it Anyway? and the second is from Rhett and Link's show Good Mythical Morning.
To start with, here's a bit with my favorites, Colin and Ryan. Ryan is Dr. Frankenstein, and Colin is a very light-footed Igor.
A note about this second video. Rhett and Link have a YouTube show called Good Mythical Morning, and they end each day's episode with a little skit using a prompt that they are given right beforehand. This video is part of a series that took the dialogue and animated it. I hope you enjoy :)
