Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

I'm going to check out of this thread because somehow merely stating my opinion about Improv has become very douchy. Anybody is welcome to whatever hackery they like. I shouldn't have made a stir about it. Maybe it is all good these talent-free stiffs have somewhere to go.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

the only really effective rebuttal to someone who thinks great improv doesn't exist is showing them good improv. I wish I could transport the Sunday Service's set from last night into this thread.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

or maybe better improv up a Bad Sequel to Hunger Games where the teen contestants don't actually fight but just sit around and viciously mock each other's pathetic lack of secondary sexual characteristics.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

Ahh ok now we know who dropped those dislikes on me.

Here's some improv Whitney Johnson why don't you make like a nissan leaf and blow up.

BAM.

PS: if i was going to riff on your pituitary game blunder i would definitely draw a pictionary of a starfish to mock your lack of secondary sexual characteristics.

BAM

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

"Pictionary games"... Though it's way beyond pituitary games too.

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

Wow "I'm right" it sounds like you're pretty ignorant of the art form. It's way beyond "2 drink minimum pituitary games." Also, with all of your "off the cuff" abilities, I'm curious. .. where have you done improv?

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

I wasn't trying to be funny. Improv is super lame. What's with all the dislikes?

Re: “Comedy's Endless Boom

Temple, improv is for hacks. It's *giggle* funny to people who have no off-the-cuff ability at all and are amazed at those who do.
Nothing good ever comes from cover charge 2 drink minimum pictionary games.

Re: “Puppet King

Thanks for expounding. "Puppeteers and co-creators" is intended as shorthand, not short shrift.

Re: “Puppet King

Calling Brian and Wendy Froud puppeteers seems limited at best. Brian Froud essentially designed/styled the entire universe for those films (Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal), and I thought Wendy was largely a sculptor and fabricator? Both very creative and talented people, who clearly had a very creative and talented son. Can't wait to see the film.

Re: “One Day at a Time

As is my wont i always bludgeon and twerk the names of metroplex blockblusters when i order the ticket at the little window. This is the small blood i take from the system in exchange for its extraction of cash from my wallet and often, the commonsense

I will not be attending The Sonofabitch With The Helmet but if i were...

Re: “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Hand2Mouth

Oh! I found this show so hard to swallow. It lack of story, and at the same time it there were to many stories overlapping. Not my favorite, and I really wanted to like it.

YES. Tim True was a local treasure. Totally agree.

Re: “Silver Linings

I barely make it to Tigard, much less Salem; our coverage is focused on Portland because we don't distribute outside of the Portland area. If you're looking for regional arts coverage, try Oregon Arts Watch (orartswatch.org) or OPB's State of Wonder (http://www.opb.org/radio/programs/stateofw…).
