Monday night at UCB I ran in to Harrison, meet him a couple weeks ago and have been running in to him at UCB since. Monday he tells me about this thing he puts on Tuesdays. A special improv night for students and people in the UCB community. Which I’ve now infiltrated. I half expect him to tell me a password and when I get there to find a thick door with a slot that slides open, revealing a pair of eyes that ask me for the password.

It turns out, it’s not a 1920’s speak easy at all, but a very small theater that can seat about 25 people and it’s free. That is, it’s all donation based. I showed up at 8 and left at sometime after midnight. At 11 they do a Jam, which basically means an open mic for improv performers. They ask who wants to come up, and then divide up the people that raise their hands in to groups. I was in group 3.

So last night marked my first time officially doing improv on stage. I half expected to just hang on the wall, but at some point they started talking about God in a museum, so I saw my opening an walked out as a statue of jesus and stood there for like 3 minute, while jokes were made.

And that was pretty much it, but I did something.

Afterword I talked with a bunch of the players and Harrison told me he himself was scared as hell the first time he went up. So I think I’m just par for the course. Hell the other night at the UCB Jam I saw several people that never made it past wall flowering, so maybe I’m ahead of the jam. Now I just need to think on my feet, and maybe not laugh while I’m a statue of jesus.http://samproof.wordpress.com/category/los-angeles/
