Starts with black screen, and cuts to girl being thrown into ball pit–McDonald’s ball pit

Girl: 

Oh my gawsh! Is this…McDonalds? I LOVE fast food…but, why am I here?

Waiting Room Person:

Oh you’re here, a little late though…must be a glitch in the system

Girl:

What, no! I’m always fashionably late for things.

Waiting Room Person:

I see…well, we’ll have you out of here in just a second. Oh, by the way, you’re dead. Sorry about that, but welcome to burgertory.

Girl: 

Are you kidding me?! I can’t be dead, I still have things to do! Like…post about how I don’t get fake tans or wear makeup on Instagram! I thought purgatory meant I was a ghost.

Waiting Room Person:

Ma’m, I apologize, but it’s not my job to console the deceased. The best I can do is offer you is a lukewarm McFlurry. And it’s BURGERtory. Some guy misspelled purgatory, so a McDonald’s was built.

Girl:

Wow, some people just don’t have common sense. #can’t relate. (Gets handed drink) Oooh yasss, that looks so delish. I bet you’ve met tons of other girls who wouldn’t dare to even look at one of these, but I’m nothing like them! I bet they only like salads, so shallow am I right?

Waiting Room Person:

Okay…I’m just about to send you up to heaven, but don’t get too excited, this is just a formality. We have to see what God thinks of you.

Girl:

Wdym? I’m totally heaven material. I’m not fake, I love video games, and I love rock music! I bet you don’t have anyone like that up there!

Waiting Room Person:

Note to God…girl talks in abbreviations…alright. I think we’re all set to go. (Pushes button)

Girl: 

I must tell you, unlike some people, (Trailing off) I’m super anxious and loyal to my boyfriend–

Waiting Room Person: 

Oof. Good luck God.

Girl:

I’m so glad I didn’t fix my hair today. I know some people would, but I like it messy.

God:

Welcome to heaven! Where you can live in luxury for all of–are you still talking about your hair?

Girl:

Oh, sorry, I just wanted to point out that I’m so unique that I didn’t even wash it this morning. I bet other girls wouldn’t be caught dead like that, but not me!

God:

(To themself) Well, we all have our flaws…

Girl:

Oh, and do you have Call of Duty up here? I like to play video games while I bet other girls are getting their nails done. They’re so typical, lol.

God:

Ahem. Right, well, I see a strong lack of…personality coming from you, so–

Girl:

What r u saying? I’m just exposing all the horrible things other women do, and how I’m so much different and better than them!

God:

Riiight. Well, I think you’ll be a much better fit down in hell…sooo, bye.

Girl:

(Trailing off) Probably no other girls get to meet Satan–

Satan:

Who’s this girl? She doesn’t seem like a bad person…ugh, probably reads books and teaches children to write…

Girl:

Actually, I run a full time blog called Quirkchat! It’s where all special girls can get together, and explain how hard it is to be an outcast for not wearing skinny jeans.

Satan:

…You’ll fit in just fine.

Girl:

EXCUSE ME?!

Satan:

…w-what?

Girl:

NO, no no no no!

Satan:

…I-…what’s the problem?

Girl:

  1. Don’t. Fit. In. I can’t believe you would even say that I don’t want to be like other girls I want to be my own person how could you even compare me to those ordinary and common girls they don’t have any defining qualities–

(The ground begins to shake)

Satan:

W-what’s happening?!

(God and Waiting Room Person appear in hell)

Waiting Room Person:

Her quirkiness is ripping a hole in the system! She’s too unusual for the afterlife! If we don’t do something soon, the whole universe could collapse!

Girl:

–and I don’t get why they even exist I mean they’re clones they all put gunk all over their faces and they only care about lipstick breaking boys hearts and clothes! I have no clue why–

(God, thinking quickly, pulls out his iPhone, goes onto iTunes, and starts playing…)

God:

Billie Eillish songs should calm her down…

Satan:

How do you know?

God:

I went on the “not like other girls reddit page.”

(God plays a song)

Girl

 –I’m so outdoorsy and…other people…can’t…understand–Is that Billie? Omg she’s my queen!! (Starts lip syncing to Bad Guy)

Waiting Room Person:

It’s a pretty good song…

God:

Yeah, I never realized that…

Satan:

I don’t think any normal people listen to Billie…

Waiting Room Person, God, and Satan:

(Turning into quirky girls–high pitched voices and super enthusiastic) We must be unique because of our specific song preferences!

Girl:

Now you’re getting it!

(They all start humming to the song)

Improv class teaches people to ‘roll with the punches’ #fridaywisdom #fridaymotivivation

“Improv is communication training. And it’s empathy training,” he said. “Improv is really just a fancy way of talking about how we understand language and how we understand the communication that a group of people can have amongst themselves.” Jean-Michel Cliche in article from The Aquinian, St. Thomas University’s independent newspaper, is a student-owned-and-operated publication.

So well put and in these times, more than ever, we have so many punches to roll. Pandemic plus politics plus financial ruin equals a beyond psychologically tough 2020.

But those that will emerge from successfully, or at least this less scathed, will take the good and take the bad (The Facts of Life) and stay focused on their goals.

This past week top CEOs denounced ZOOM meetings, calling them far less creative hubs etc.

They are not wrong.
Improv teaches us to thrive working with perfection.

These #unprecendented times call for unprecedented measures.

I miss performing on stage but I know folks need laughs. Teaching on ZOOM is draining but I press on, motivated by the joy my students get from the work.

If we stop focusing on what we can’t do, and drive the machine that does work to its max, we will find new ways, sometimes better ways for forge forward!

7 Ways Standup Comedy Can Help Your Auditions (BACKSTAGE ARTICLE)

Click to read full article at Backstage https://www.backstage.com/magazine/article/7-ways-standup-comedy-can-help-your-auditions-67827/

Walt Frasier has been teaching Stand-Up comedy since 2011. We find data from articles in Improv Comedy all the time. Here are the highlights of Backstage’s Article.

  • It makes you more dynamic.
  • You learn timing.
  • You can sell a line.
  • You put attention to tension. 
  • You can be your best self.
  • You learn and play with your type.
  • You get out of your comfort zone.

Walt Frasier Adds:

  • One of the best reasons to do stand up comedy is discovering who YOU are.
  • While doing Stand-Up you showcase who YOU are. Casting Director or Agent in the audience know what they are getting should they stumble into your work.
  • Being in the clubs you are networking with other comics, show bookers and industry. The networking is amazing.

I grew up a theater actor. I was trained to become someone else for hundreds and thousands of people. I was mostly musical theater and opera.

18 years ago I landed in comedy, almost by accident. At first as a way to showcase for industry, but eventually learned how to produce and make money in comedy clubs.

I slowly discovered how to play REAL through Improv, which made me much more desirable for modern plays. Through Stand-Up I learned to play myself, which made me more desirable for TV.

Both made me far better at auditioning. But it was the Stand up comedy, including serving as MC for 5000+ short form Improv comedy shows, that made me confident to stand by myself and just do the work.

I wish I had learned this skill earlier. I’ve been working in Theater since 1994, debuting in DC dinner theater. After that a lot of stipend work and a few regional/touring musicals. But like most “actors”, I spent more time serving food and drinks.

In 2002 I fell into comedy, by accident, through my wife’s troupe. By 2005 it became my day job, doing 6-8 shows/week at Times Square clubs, including a few gigs with corporate events, colleges, etc.

It was being in the club that got me my first TV gig, a sketch show, STANKERVISION on MTV 2. It was being in another club years before that landed my second TV gig NAKED BROTHER’S BAND on NICK. Currently at the IMPROV I was working one block away from LETTERMEN when they called me in to walk a horse across stage. I made a good impression and was asked back the next week to ride a bike across stage. In all I was booked nine times, eating a lot of cookies in the green room.

In 2007, I met a guy, who was the friend of a friend of my soon to be manager. I booked my first SAG commercial off my first booked audition through my manager. This relationship led to many commercial bookings and a few Costar TV books as well. So far the big film role has escaped me but a number of call backs have been amazing relationship builders with dozens of NYC Casting Directors.

Starting a Comedy Career During Covid

One might think these are the worst times to start doing comedy, when every club in the world is closed or operating at diminished capacity.

However the time is perfect to start developing your self and your act. Online shows have small audiences but thanks to online platforms hundreds, perhaps thousands, can discover your work online.

Right now, online comedy classes are cheaper. Unlike Theater, Stand up classes are perhaps even more effecting online. We get to focus on things that get difficult with stage nerves getting in the way.

To become a stand up comic all you need is stage time. In my booked STAND-UP COMEDY, I lay out a simple four step process to develop a five minute routine. I also discuss ways to get stage time.

Stage time is the secret sauce. You need to get on stage, or online. Whether in a class, open mic, or a booked show, every moment on stage develops your talent and material.

ONLINE CLASSES

Currently I have a class every Monday at 8pm Online. EMAIL me to drop in your first class for FREE eightimprov@gmail.com

How Improvisation Changes the Brain: Creativity = Self Confidence

Science finds that engaging in creativity such as Improv Comedy builds self-confidence due to actual changes in rain function.

Are you plagued by that voice in your head? How many times have you missed out in your personal or professional life because that fear of speaking freely, fear of failure, fear of the unknown held you back?

I have seen Improv Comedy classes turn total stage fright into out going fun loving individuals in kids and adults. I have said just playing Improv Games builds self confidence. I just learned why.

Improv game play gets those happy juices flowing, thanks to the smiles and laughter that literally squeeze the fun out of your face, into the whole body while pumping oxygen into the brain. To the thousands that have seen our shows, I feel bad, playing the games is so much more fun than watching. Mind, body and soul are nourished on another level.

However, improv actually increases certain brain functions while turning off the Debby Downer “inner critic” part of your mind. Reading this article is a major AH HA moment that have seen the actualization of this science.

Here is an excerpt from Psychology Today

“During improvisation, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex decreased in activity and the medial prefrontal cortex increased. The dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is like your inner critic; it’s that voice in your head that says, “Don’t say that” or “What will happen if you’re wrong?” 

Comedy Classes Online

On the other hand, the medial prefrontal cortex is associated with language and creativity. While musicians improvised, their brains’ censors decreased and their creativity centers increased in activity.”

YES! And… How Improv Builds Stronger Personal Relationships

YES! And… Is the #1 rule in Improv. This simple two word governing principal packs a lot of benefits for your personal and professional life.

How much easier would it be to interview for a job, make new friends, interact with co-workers, have an honest conversation with partners, or even lead a team if we could reduce or out right eliminate fears of failure, fears of the unknown and social anxieties such as stage fright?

We daily claim to clients from corporate teams that Improv Comedy will help build team, leadership, sales and service skills. We claim Improv builds creative writing, critical thinking, public speaking and self-confidence.

But how does Improv comedy build these skills?

Stage Fright is the #1 phobia, combining both the fears of unknown and fear of failure. Combined these fears paralyze the best of us and even cause physical sickness and nausea.

Similarly social interaction anxieties thrive in this phobic space.

Improv turns fears of public speaking and social interaction on their head by simply playing games as a team. No one individual is left out to fail. The team forms a tight knit unit that works together to play.

That’s right, we don’t perform, we play. We play games.

We pass words around like a sports team passes a ball. In fact, sometimes we even pantomime passing around a ball.

We start with the basics. We play games that require listening and focus to succeed and nothing else. A game like ZIP ZAP ZUP seems silly and ridiculous, but it’s genius is it’s break down of all other needs. All you have to do is to follow the energy around the room, listen and focus. You don’t have to think. You don’t have to impress. You just do.

Then we add words. We don’t try to be funny. We don’t try to be clever. We just listen and respond. We simply contribute to the team.

Then we create sentences, one word at a time. Eventually we offer entire sentences at a time.

At each step we teach just adding a word is better than trying to think of the perfect word. Any word you say is good enough and accepted. There are no mistakes. There is no failure. There is no judgement.

Think like a five year old. Just play. Leave behind all those things we learned in middle school like fear and judgement.

Also let go of ego, the over compensation for insecurity. Find a space where all are on equal footing, regardless of age, experience etc.

I tell students of any age not to even hold myself, the teacher with 18 years experience as better.

Psychological Safety achieved. The spark of self-confidence blooms. Wonderful things emerge….

Creativity Now Thrives

As artists, this space, free of judgement, free from fear, the brain’s synapses start to fire.

Now that we have relaxed our tensions and laughed a bit, oxygen is pumping in at new highs. The head actually starts to tingle.

Ideas flow. As an actor, ideas about character. As a designer, shapes and colors circle. Even programers start to see new patterns for computer codes.

We become open to new ideas from others as well. Creative collaboration thrives.

Critical Thinking

William Fry, the late great humor guru from Stanford University, states that humor builds a better brain by constantly comparing two otherwise unlike items.

Once you let down your guard, you see more possiblity. You can’t think our of the box when stuck in your own construct.

The world tries to put us in a box, stop doing that to ourselves. (Branding “experts” might disagree lol).

As a team, YES! And… will lead to all sorts of possibilities. The solution to the problem is never found at the initial brainstorm. Too many teams and companies and individuals fail by not fleshing out all the options.

“Never fall in love with your first draft” or idea. But letting those first ideas flow without fear of failure will lead to the amazing choices.

Better Presentation Skills

Most classes in public speaking have it backwards, trying to build your confidence by teaching you better presentation skills.

Simply building confidence, reducing fear of failure and unknowns, opens one up to present information better. Over time you will learn from mistakes, because NOW you are not afraid to make big ones. You are taking chances.

Now if you misspeak, stumble, for draw a blank for a moment you won’t freak out. You can simply smile, breathe and move past the inconsequential moment in time, and find humor and joy in your “failure”.

Also Improv teaches storytelling. Your presentations, whether to a mass gathering or small table of friends, will become more interesting.

Relationships

Both personal and business relationships are destroyed, or never formed, due to these fears.

Many amazing connections are avoided altogether, because we fear the word NO, in others.

Fear of initiating contact could lead to missing out on a valuable partnership.

Great sales people and con artists are successful because they know about the numbers games AND never fear it’s perceived failures. A NO is not a failure, it’s just a NO.

The Confidence to Say YES

Saying NO is easy choice. Saying NO is the lazy choice.

Saying YES puts responsibility on your shoulders. It requires follow through. It requires listening. It requires confidence in your self.

Saying YES puts yourself out there for possible failure, possible hurt.

How many say no at work, because you fear backlash.

NO, we can’t afford that.

NO, we don’t have time for that.

NO, the bosses won’t go for that.

How many great ideas are left behind because too many lacked vision?

Instead, what if you enacted a little improv exercise? Ignore the kneeejerk NO and take two minutes to brainstorm that idea.

Maybe it leads no where, but chances are it leads to another even better idea that NEVER would have materialized.

This vision takes YES AND leadership.

The Confidence to Say NO

We focus on saying YES in the improv world. But it needs to be stated that we should always say yes UNLESS it puts us in physical, mental or emotional harm.

Having confidence to say NO at the right time can save a life time of pain. Too many reserve NOs for fear of involvement but fear saying NO when it will save us pain, in some cases physical injury.

Saying NO to an abusive friend or family member or partner, because we fear being alone, financial ruin etc is real.

Saying NO to a “friend” daring us to ski down that that slope we are not easy for can kill.

Building confidence gives us the power to choose our story.

It’s Not All Kumbaya

For me, YES And… is a selfish choice. I surround myself with, and support individuals that support me. Those that choose to judge or abuse are left out. I give them every chance to embrace, I try to teach them to let go of the old games, but at the end of the day, I get to choose my family.

I experience pain and hurt. That’s part of life. But in between tough moments I am surrounded with smiles and laughter. I have amazing clients that come back year after year. I work with the best team of artists. When I have love to give I give. When I am hurting I have a village of support, now from around the world thanks to social media.

Have the confidence to make GREAT choices in business and personal life.

Start building your tribe today, surrounding yourself with supportive genuine friends buy discovering self confidence and other skills from improv comedy.
