Upright Citizens Brigade Writes Its Book on Improv

The comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade has a new manual for improvisation that adds further discipline to the Second City lessons on the form.

“It’s joke heavy, fast and funny,” said TJ Jagodowski…“

Finally someone has said it (again)! UCBT IS ALL ABOUT THE JOKES. Level 101: Jokes. Level 201: Better Jokes. Level 301: Jokes! Jokes! Jokes! Level 401: Harold.

"Mr. Napier argues that great improvisation derives from a more childlike part of the psyche, not the muscle memory needed for ballet or driving. “You have to tap into the part of you that plays,” he said, “and the part of you that’s always thinking and adhering to rules and hierarchy and constructs and order and logic is not the part that an audience enjoys.”

Again! Finally someone says it! There is nothing an audience likes more than watching children play. It’s riveting! That’s why all across this great country, theatre after theatre is filled with audiences watching small children play together. Adults using that childlike spirit of play in concert with their more mature abilities of logic and humor is BORING.

Also… I love "Improvise.” But it’s full of rules.
