Fear Corner – Tomorrow!

I’m excited to play with Fear Corner tomorrow night at the Tank!

8:30 pm – 151 w. 46th, Manhattan

My friend Dan Pozmanter started Fear Corner at the PIT about a year and a half ago, and is in the process of expanding. It’s a great opportunity for improvisers to pick something that freaks them out, and just f*ing do it.

There are a million things I could pick that I’m afraid of. At one point, during an exercise at the Annoyance that involved creating extreme characters, I had a panic-inducing 90s flashback to being in the nurse’s office during Field Day, begging to be sent home. But, I did the exercise. It was a riot. I now know if I need to play a German troll prince, I can totally do it.

Chucking my poise out the window is something I’ve been working on in my improv. Trying to shed the feelings of “but I need to look pretty or I’ll get in trouble.” Ugh. Thanks, America.

Tomorrow night I’m taking the fear of doing big characters and expanding it to doing very specific characters- Impressions. Why? One the main things holding me back in improv (and in life), is the NEED to do things RIGHT. (Or else!)

So, I’ll probably screw up a bunch of celebrity impressions. Miss Piggy will sound like Fat Albert, LeBron James will probably have a limp that makes no sense. James Franco might simply smile like an idiot all night long.

It may not turn out “right,” but I am pretty sure I’ll leave the show tomorrow with a goldmine of new characters to play with. And that sounds fun!

I am currently performing with two teams: Dust Strike and Blind Tiger.
