There’s a good movie out right now that’s about longform improv comedy! Don’t Think Twice tells the story of a New York longform improv troupe that disintegrates as one of its members gets cast in a major teevee show.
The script (by Mike Birbiglia) does a good job of showing how longform improv works on stage and how performers use experiences and opinions in their shows. Check it out at Violet Crown.
Just a reminder that Big Blue Door is Charlottesville’s only longform improv training program! (Here are some of our performers on a trip to New York.) You learn to find the comedy in real situations, you learn to be comfortable with your own thoughts, and you learn to listen to those around you! It’s fantastically fun.
Big Blue Door’s next Improv I course starts in September!
