On the “finding the game” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer welcome Matt Besser, one of the founding members of Upright Citizens Brigade about his new improv manual just released, the difference between long-form and short-form improv, how “yes, and” has become trite and harmful and clarifying other terminology and concepts in improv and ultimately, making it easier for those in middle America to learn improv.
In addition, we discuss the advantages and disadvantages stand-ups have when doing improv, how “the game” of the scene is closely similar to exploring what makes a joke funny, whether or not it’s possible to make a living touring around the country as an improvisor, and how in show business it’s imperative to have that one undeniably great “thing.”
