1 Improviser 2 Chairs – On tour

“As art imitates life, I have found that the techniques used in improv has improved my quick “respond on the spot” timing in social situations where there is that tiny window of time to interject with a humorous quip. Also, in work related situations dealing with disgruntled clients, I can diffuse a confrontation before it escalates into an argument. Improvisation classes are truly confidence building and the most endorphin releasing fun I have ever had in a long time.”

What is more frightening then doing an entire show alone on stage? How about bringing up an audience member, who has never attempted improv before, to perform with you? What could go wrong?!

An idea created by 30 Rock‘s Scott Adsit for short performance games and further developed into a long-format by Matt Holmes, Stephanie brings this highly risky and always entertaining improv format to Canada!

Stephanie personally attempted this concept as a short segment in the “Rack pack presents…” show in June 2013, where she pulled up 3 unsuspecting audience members over the 3 day run.

Why is Stephanie doing this? To prove two of the “improv laws” that she teaches daily in her classes:

1) ANYONE can improvise

2) If you take care of your scene partner you will have success

She is hoping to bring the format to several festivals in Canada and would like to add the improvised musical component as her first love has always been musical improv…let’s see if she can get an audience member singing!
