30 Different ways


Dan Allen was kind enough to remind me of this gem of an exercise.


Get an askfor. Then do thirty (or whatever number) scenes in a row based on the one askfor.

Think of an askfor like ‘submarine’. The first scene will likely be; one guy looking at the sonar screen, making the sonar noise. Then the Captain comes in and pulls down the periscope.

That’s cool, no doubt you can get a good scene out of that. But what about the next scene? And the one after that?

The more scenes you do the scarier it gets. And when improv is getting scary, well that’s a sign that we’re getting at the good stuff.
