Subject:TRUTH TELLING, LSD, AND DEL CLOSE
Security:Public

(Hey guys! My name is Chris Tharp and I was an ensemble member down at Unexpected Productions from '93 to 2000. I probably know more than a couple members here - Hi Michael White! The following post is a story I wrote a couple of months ago. It was inspired by a workshop I did with Del Close in the early 90's. I hope you get a kick out of it.)

Doing comedy again has forced me to reconsider the mechanics and philosophy behind it: What is funny? Why is it funny? Why is bad comedy so unbearable to watch? Why do I feel the compulsion to jump on a stage and try to make people laugh?

I recently hosted a comedy open mike here in Busan, something that I'm making a regular occurrence. I tried out a few minutes of new material, and it went over really well. After the show my good buddy Sam - who has seen me onstage a jolly shitload of times - pulled me aside to give me his rundown of my set. While rolling his eyes at some of my tired, old jokes, he lit a smoke and said, "Your new stuff was great, because you were just telling the truth."

Truth in Comedy.

This got me to think of Del Close, who co-authored a book of the same name. Del had a massive impact on me as an improvisor and comedian (and subsequently, a writer). I hadn't thought about him in a while, but just hearing the phrase "telling the truth" made it all come back to me.

Subject:Political Comedy Show Opens Thursday Night!
Security:Public

Hey everyone! I want to let you know about a unique political comedy show that that opens on Thursday at 8:00 PM on September 4th called Election Show 2008. It’s represented Seattle at comedy festivals all over the country and been featured in the Seattle PI, NPR, NWCN and more.

Election Show 2008 is a completely improvised election where the audience votes for the winner. What makes it different though is that it is a nonpartisan political comedy show. It features no real political issues (no war, taxes, etc.). We use our own candidates, our own political parties and our candidate's platforms are chosen by the audience. If one candidate promises to shorten the workday from eight hours to four while the other promises to create a new branch of the military comprised entirely of ninjas, the people's will rules.

It mocks the election process, politicians, the two party system and the endless media coverage so everyone can relate to it.

Eleection Show 2008 opens Thursday night, Sept. 4th @ 8:00 PM @ the Historic University Theater; 5510 University Way NE.

Here’s the quick DL:

What: Election Show 2008
When: Thursday and Fridays @ 8:00; September 4-19, October 2-24
Where: Historic University Theater; 5510 University Way NE
Cost: $10 GA, $8 Students
Co-Created & Directed by John Boyle and Douglas S. Willott

Subject:2 New Improv Classes This Summer in Seattle!
Security:Public

 Hello everyone, I'm now a retiree from Unexpected Productions (after 14 years) and am out on my own.  BLOOD SQUAD is still going dead and well.  More exciting coming up in the future. 

I'm holding my own improv classes this summer.  Details below!

 

SuperStar Summer Improv


It's going to be short and sweet because it's summertime.

T
hink of it as the concentrated like the venom of an Australian snake.  This class is designed for people who have some basic improv skills.

 

Week 1:  Move! Move! Move!

 

Are you the kind of improviser who finds your self standing around a lot and "reflecting"? 
While that can work (hardly ever) it is essential that an improviser move with purpose on stage and that you create a world that the audience can "see"! 

You will discover powerful tools that will help you keep the scene moving along, keep you safe during your fight scenes, and keep your audiences engaged and delighted!

 

Week 2:  I think that I shall love to see an improviser pretending to be a tree!

 

This week will focus again on how to create images the audience can see without being the lead character in the scene. 
Be ready to play goats, cows, forklifts, gas clouds, climate change, and so on. 

We will discover more practical skills for those wanting to advance in their improv careers.  Sometimes just chewing your cud is enough, knowing when is what makes the difference!

 

Week 3:  The Three E's (Energy, Excitement and Attack)

 

What you won't see:  2 improvisers sitting on blocks mumbling about corn futures (even in rhyming cuplets…oh wait this actually sounds kind of cool).

What you will see:  Improvisers ATTACKING the stage with performance ready energy and excitement!

Week 4:  Finding the "Improve" in Improv.

 

Okay so this week's title is disgusting.  This is a chance for you to integrate all that you have learned into a powerful skill set that you can take with you into auditions, on stage and into your corn futures Meetup group. 
We will also be addressing and eliminating habits that are keeping you from being an improv SUPERSTAR!

 

DATES:  Thursdays July 10, 17, 21, 31 7pm -10pm

 

WHERE:  Odd Duck Studio, 1214 10th Ave E. (Up on Capitol Hill folks – Across from the IHOP)

 

COST:  $200.00

 

Maximum # of students 10 (minimum # 5)

 

For more information call Michael White at (206) 947-8390 or email him at  

emailbloodsquad@yahoo.com.

 

 

 

Improv for Non-Actors (and aspiring actors!)
 
Class Description
 
You've seen it on stage and TV and have always wondered, "How do they do it?" 

Learn how to create scenes out of thin air using only your imagination!  
This class is for anyone who has wanted to step on stage to create characters who live funny and compelling lives!  

By playing short scenes and improv games, you will learn the fundamental skills that allow for awesome interaction with fellow students.  

You will also learn the joy of free-falling, spontaneous exchange, group creation and rapport building.  

This class will you give you a dynamic edge that you can carry with you into the "real" world, skill-sets that can enhance your work and your play.  

This class is only available to those ready to have a fantastic time!

 

Dates:  Saturday, July 5, 12, 19, 26  11:30am - 2:30pm.
 
Where:  Odd Duck Studio
             1214 10th Ave E
(On Capitol Hill in Seattle - Across from the IHOP on Madison.)
 
Cost:  $200.00 (Payments can be made by check or by credit card.  I take payments through PayPal).
 
Maximum # of students:  12      (minimum # 5)

In case all you people don't read The News-Tribune, they're running a great contest.

They're giving away tickets to all kinds of events - music (Pine Leaf Boys, Eddie Daniels, Billy Collins), theater (Little Mermaid, A Night With Groucho), a combo of the two (Pink Floyd Experience), comedy (The Nobodies of Comedy) and many others.

Like I said, I know they're running it in the paper, but they're also doing the promotion online.

Subject:Mind States and Improv! March 10 & 11
Security:Public

Hey Pac Nortwest Improvisers!

I'm holding a two day intensive (March 10, 11 from noon to 3pm) at the Market Theater (Unexpected Productions/Theater Sports) called, "Mind State". It's a class designed to help an improviser of any level easily access their natural spontaneous state!

Spontaneity is the natural state that is often forgotten by people or taught out of them at an early age. It's an unconscious process that is the foundation of theatrical improvisation, without it, you ain't improvising!

Using the techniques of Hypnosis, NLP and EFT, students will learn how to quickly and easily get into a state that will allow them to perform improvised scenes seamlessly and from their natural power!

A sense of boundless energy and freedom, joyful calm, and unstoppable fun are the earmarks of a player performing spontaneously! Expect this and more from this class!

And it's 50 bucks for 6 hours of instruction!

Thanks for reading and if you want more information on hypnosis, EFT, etc., check out my website: http://www.knowmoretrances.com

Michael White, instructor!
