When I last left you, Mr. Tennis and I were preparing to attend
Jim Belushi and the Chicago Board of Comedy show.
What I didn't realize when I bought the tickets was that
it was an improv show.
I thought it was stand-up comedy.
You know, tell a joke, get a laugh,
ha ha ha!
|Loved this when I wore it a couple years ago at our holiday party.|
Wish I had been drinking before the improv!
So, here are 5 things I learned about improv that evening!
5. Sit in the front row and you may be called upon!
4. Wear a cute (?) faux fur vest and your chances of being called
upon increase exponentially!
3. Speak in your very best Midwest twang and
your chances of being ridiculed increase even more!
2. Do not attempt to make a joke.
(the only jokes that should be made are by the comedians . . .
so say the comedians!).
1. I don't like improv!
HA HA HA!
What a riot it was!
Seriously, parts of it funny -- I laughed hysterically
when they made fun of me
(inside I was dying though).
So, the lesson I learned was . . .
read the fine print -- if it says "improv"
don't buy those tickets!
