Improv Gig 41: Impromp2 – 2prov – Wednesday 10th September 2014

Improv Gig : 41.
Date : Wednesday 10th September, 2014.
Company : Impromp2
Duos : Claire Corfield & Matt Vaughn-Wilson / Kit Murdock & Aaron Twitchen / Neil Jackson & John Robinson / Lorcan Mullan & Matt Fishwick / Lee Dempsey & Wanda Keenan.
Location : Cherry Reds, 88-90 John Bright Street, Birmingham, United Kingdom, B1 1BN.
Start time : 7.30pm.
Duration : 2 hours.

Show Format:
This evening differed from my usual improv shows because it was the first time that I had performed longform improv as part of a duo. Each duo would get 10-15 minutes to improvise scenes based off an audience suggestion.

The Gig Itself:

First Half

DUO 1: Claire Corfield & Matt Vaughn-Wilson
Suggestion: I want to say Needle. So, needle.
Featuring violent knitters and broken legs, a schoolboy / teacher liason and a French spy falling in love with the British way of life during World War 2.

DUO 2: Kit Murdock & Aaron Twitchen
Suggestion: Honey
Featuring an obese woman and the man that loved her. A young girl obsessed with Cliff Richard and his religious songs and that father that was wary of him. And a boy who didn't know his name or address.

DUO 3: Neil Jackson & John Robinson
Suggestion: Can't remember what the suggestion was, but the number was 74.
Featuring a Scottish / Welsh border dweller applying for his English Citizenship, skipping back 74 months into the past with each new scene so that it was revealed how he met and then killed his wife, how his wife had a knife fetish and how Jurassic Park inspired the whole thing.

Second Half

DUO 4: Lorcan Mullan & Matt Fishwick
Suggestion: Brecon Beacons
Featuring a home in a remote location, and a father imparting wisdom to his son, about how he learnt to heal himself from bullet wounds with the power of his mind. The reason why he thought the power of the mind worked. And how he ended up being paid to get a mortgage.

DUO 5: Wanda Keenan & Lee Dempsey
Suggestion: Chrysanthemum
Featuring overly creative funeral flower arrangers. Flirting uppercrust horse riders. A song. And inappropriate comforting at a funeral.

Post Gig Thoughts:
This was the first time that I had been to Cherry Reds (performing or other otherwise.) It's a nice space. The evening flew by and I enjoyed all the acts. I really enjoyed doing longform, and it is definitely something that I'd like to do more of when I get to Australia. There are quite a few improv groups out there, and one of them does longform classes, so that's something I'll be looking into because I'd to get better at it and do more shows. I'm also going to be looking to do more regular improv classes when I get over there. And maybe look into taking an acting class or two as well.

Thanks to the Kit for inviting us, the participants for giving us an entertaining show and to the audience for turning up and laughing.

See you all at my next show.

Scottish Referendum: You Decide

My ol' improv pal, stand up comic and writer extraordinaire, Judgement Dave, has written a book about the Scottish Referendum. It's a Choose Your Own Adventure style book where you get to make choices about what happens. (Just like voting, only yours is the only vote that counts.) It's a lot of fun.

It's available on Kindle, whereever Kindle books are sold. (So, Amazon.)

Mundane Monday

It's Mundane Monday.

Now that summer's over and the nights are drawing in, it's time to take advantage of office car park valet service.

You would think they'd hire someone who can see over the steering wheel, but despite that flaw, he managed to park the car in the space purrfectly.

I'm here all week. (Well, until Wednesday, as I work from home on Thursdays and Fridays.)

“Summer” “Funnies”

It's the dog days of summer. So after a summer hiatus from the ol' blog-a-tron, here's some of the things I have written over the summer that have disappeared into the social media ether, and are now granted a chance at a second life:

Presenting a round up of all the "jokes" that I wrote in July and August:

  1. It's difficult to do my Thunderbirds tribute show because of all the strings attached.
  2. I'm 32, so I got my #GCSEresults over 20 years ago. I don't remember much about them. Except failing maths.
  3. So the M6 is going to be a managed motorway. It's about time. It's career hasn't been going anywhere for years.
  4. Stop creating fake jobs! "@BBCNews: Self-employed make up two-thirds of new jobs created since financial crisis http://t.co/pVw3ZQsLAo"
  5. Disappointed to have finally got rid of that cough. It was a great ab workout.
  6. "Do you expect me to talk?"
    "No, Mr Bond. I expect you to professionally cater this banquet for 300."
  7. Finally moved to the Big city. Disappointed to find Josh Baskin doesn't exist.
  8. Spent ages this morning waiting for the little spider on the ceiling to descend, but he never did. Am I to be forever denied my Kirsten Dunst moment?
  9. I can't believe Blockbuster still haven't got back to me about that job I applied for. Ignorant assholes.
  10. Just seen Prince Charles' Ice bucket video. He nominated The Queen. #ByAnyMeansNecessary.
  11. In this hotel, one guest just screamed obscenities through a door at another guest. In my defense, he shouldn't keep me f***ing waiting. The c**t.
  12. There's a mirror opposite this bed. It means I can watch as I do my favourite thing.
    Eating ice cream.
  13. Been all over town, and I can't find a greetings card from the Spite range called "Ha Ha You Have To Go Back To School."
  14. It is 10:20am. My phone is fully charged. I could go anywhere, if I didn't have to be in work.
  15. With a potential Nutella shortage on the way, doctors see panic spread as a low calorie alternative. http://nypost.com/2014/08/18/nutella-shortage-possible-after-hazelnut-crop-wiped-out/
  16. Found the 3G spot of this hotel by perching on the edge of the sofa, naked. No one else in reception seems as excited as me by this.
  17. Saw the non super moon last night. Disappointed it wasn't wearing glasses to hide its super identity.
  18. Is that sound gasses escaping, or does this bottle of Pepsi Max really not want me to reveal its secret?
  19. Q. Why did the homicidal maniac get fired from the sandwich shop?
    A. A multitude of Health & Safety Violations.
  20. Q. Why did the homicidal maniac get fired from the sandwich shop?
    A. He was all killer, no filler.
  21. Going for a W A L K. Had to spell it out, as I don't want to freak myself out about it.
  22. Just got time for a quick #EdFringe Review: He doesn't suit bangs.
  23. I dropped my first album today. Anyone got a dustpan and brush?
  24. This Pepsi Max is making my eyes sting. Lesson learnt. Cola products are not an Optrex substitute.
  25. I'm going to create two fragrances with a Star Wars theme, so we can have a new spin off called the Cologne Wars.
  26. One thing I've learnt on tonight's journey home: The further North you go, the fewer stars each train station is rated with by the citizens of Facebook. Which means one of two things. Either the quality of train stations is poorer in the north, or the people in the south are just easily impressed by shit train stations. And that, my friends, is Jerry Springer's Thought for the Day.
  27. I've got an arse that won't quit. It needs the redundancy.
  28. Just seen a pigeon go past in a checked shirt. Soon they'll all be doing it. But he did it before it was coo
  29. I just kicked a habit. The nun in it wasn't pleased.
  30. Glasgow is "buzzing" ahead of the games. Maybe that's where all the bees went?
  31. The real test of a man is how he reacts to being told by a Travelodge receptionist that he has gravy on his chin.
  32. My video's gone viral. I just sneezed on it.
  33. I don't have an addictive personality. Or so my wife said before she quite easily left me.
  34. I've just left the house. And I've changed my name, so it'll never find me.

See you next time for more hilarity, or check my Twitter feed and see me "live" tweet them.
