If you are an improviser, or thinking about taking an improv class you should know something....Improv Suggestion Rut happens! It happens to everyone.
Whether you're playing short-form improv games, or crafting a long-form Harold, narrative, etc. every show uses suggestions. Of course, I shouldn't say "every." There are a handful of shows that don't, but 95% of shows will turn to the audience and ask, "what's the best place to vacation in the summer?" Sometimes we're out of ideas, our brains are spent. We worked all day, we're tired, and we have to come up with suggestions to inspire our students, or team?
Well, here we are. The government is still shutdown. Government employees are still furloughed, and we don’ really see any end in sight. The politics are posturing, everyone is making their speeches, and the employees are getting squeezed.
I’m not here to talk politics, but I am here to say what we’re all thinking, “this sucks for the thousands of employees who need that money.“
