Online improv is better than the pitter patter of rain on a skylight.
Flat Improv - Online improv classes, jams, livestreams
Dear really cool improv friends,

We are heading into the year and a bunch of new online (flat!) classes, jams and shows have dropped.

One livestream show that I really enjoyed in late 2023 was called And Scene (Caveat, NYC), which was the same general idea as a short form (!) game called Actor's Nightmare. A favorite of mine: One person reads from a script, scene partner improvises.

That's the idea of the And Scene show. It's stunning how well some of the scenes just work. Incredible, really. (BTW, there's another And Scene livestream on Jan 15).

Livestreams at places n stuff

Oh yeah speaking of livestreams, I'm testing some out on a Facebook page I just made here (I wasn't gonna do a FB page, but then I did), and on FlatImprov Twitch. The podcast, WNIS show, etc. I don't know how much I'll use them, but they're there. These spots create events and give you event listings for livestreams I run so you can get a notif or whatnot to remind ya. I'll link jams there too maybe. 

Podcasts & Articles

Another two episodes of the Neurodiversity & Improv podcast are up on my Substack. I'm surprised I'm even doing this, but here we are.


Link: Episode 7: Fast and Slow Edits in Improv.

Details: How does your neurodiversity (especially top-down and bottom-up thinking) affect the way you edit, and how and when you do so in a scene or a show?

Link: Episode 8: Committing to YOUR weird brain in improv

Details: This episode talks about ways to commit hard to yourself, and what YOU bring to the table as a unique, neurodivergent, thinker. When can you let go and be yourself?

Obligatory facts section

In 2021, TikTok users posted a rash of confessional videos using the hashtag #NotAPerfectPerson. These videos contained admissions of times they failed and embarassing moments with a soundtrack underlay that contained the lyrics "I'm not a perfect person." That soundtrack? The opening verse of 2004 hit "The Reason" by Hoobastank.
