What we’d really love is to do Broken Chair for a living. It might happen. Yeah, and monkeys might fly out of my butt!
We’d have to sell out to do that and we are famously a strong, independent improv team. We’re not hungry for wealth or sponsorship. If we were hungry we’d go and get ourselves a delicious Pizza Hut BBQ Americano and wash it down with an ice cold can of Pepsi Max instead.
Anyway, to Chairsday…
In a basement at her mum’s house, Ange and Matt broadcast improv to the world. This is a special kind of improv in which every line is carefully scripted and rehearsed to be uniform and beautifully identical and coherent everytime… Not!
Some key things Ange wants to share with the improv world:
- 1. Being rich and successful does not make you a great improviser. Practise and a growth mindset will get you further.
- Be authentic – use your experience and knowledge to ground a scene in reality.
- Don’t be afraid to change the ending of your story to a happy one!
- if you see a little silhouetto of man then Scaramouch, Scaramouch, and maybe do the Fandango.
Have a terrible Chairsday everyone, the best you can hope for today is survival.
No, hang on, we can’t end the post with that. Let’s do the Scooby Doo ending:
Good work gang, now to unmask the real fiend behind the Chairsday massacre: I knew it! It’s old man Penstable from the New Brighton Penny Arcade. He would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn’t for us meddling kids and their pesky baseball.
That was better, but I think we all just want a happy ending:
Have a great Chairsday everyone, and don’t forget to live in the now!
