games and musical comedy. Above is a playlist of musical comedy games.
These videos are form live shows in Times Square clubs & theaters and

Here is a list of a few we play regularly and a few others.
CLICK HERE for comprehensive list of many Improv Games

BLUES
Each player sings a verse based on the title of the song - based on something
that makes an audience member mad, sad etc. Each verse is usually AABB.
A fifth verse is Improvised by each player taking ONE line of the verse.
- You can also do the same Improv over different musical styles
 50s DooWop, March, Reggae, Pop Punk, Country, Swing etc

HUMAN BEAT BOX
Players build into an A Capella beat box with drum, bass and auxiliary sounds.
Once a beat is rocking, each player takes turns rapping about given topic.
We love sporting events and favorite foods but anything is far game.

DAY IN THE LIFE
Audience member is interviewed for details from a special life experience.
Players acts out the day, recreating mini scenes. Most often as a Broadway
Musical. We usually do this as a MODERN DANCE or BALLET

FOREIGN OPERA TRANSLATED
Our version of the classic gibberish game. Two players sing in gibberish.
Two players interpret. Fifth player provides musical accompaniment.

JIG
Players sing a mock drinking song improvised based on a theme form the audience.
Every verse involves every player. ABCB rhyme Scheme. We end with dancing a jig.

MADRIGAL
A Capella Choral song weaving a series of audience suggestions. Each player
is given an initial statement. (Usually a newspaper headline). After each player
adds their suggestion a musical treatment and builds into a fugue-like choral
work, each player mixes and matches various elements to create new absurd
statements.

PROM DATE
This is a musical guessing game. All set to music, Player 1 has to guess a few
character traits. We usually give the player a job, quirk and mode of
transportation. Player 2 and player 3 - as the date and a parent sending off the
couple – have to communicate clues of the various secrets.
