Courtney Ropp | Finding What The Scene Needs
Courtney offers some tools and tricks to use on  stage when a scene falls flat, gets stuck in negotiation or is just plain boring.  We also discuss how to know when to add something or when it’s a good idea to just leave a scene alone. When one of us royally messes up an improv game (what? there are no mistakes in improv, I say!), we talk about the very fundamental improv concept of “listen and respond” and turn the clock back to 1974 when John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd became a strong improv duo.   We hope you can join us on our 6th episode of “For The Love Of Improv”!Support the show
Aurora Boles | Short Form & Beginner Improv
Most improvisers start by learning fundamentals through short form games. It is where we can quickly fall in love with the sport of improv and find our communities.  In this episode, we talk with Aurora Boles, a co-founder at Reno Improv who also teaches their short form beginner class. We chat about the evolution of short-form into professional troops and its relationship to long-form. Today's game explores heightening scenes and is a clear example of the this concept throughout the show. In our history segment, we will chat about The Harold as it forces skills that help us improve, much like short form. Today's concept is Organic Transformation. Listen to learn how to use this to enhance your improv confidence. Support the show
Tim Mahoney | Narrative Improv
The basics of storytelling inherent in every player get to the root of how long-form improv magic works. Tim Mahoney talks about the 8-step process that makes narrative improv come to life. In this episode we talk with Tim about narrative improv, secondary characters, Theatre Sports, and much, much, much, much, much more. (Let’s just say, Tim is never at a loss for words and that’s why we love having him on our podcast!).Tim Mahoney is an improv coach and teacher at Reno Improv. He would rather be doing improv than almost anything else (who wouldn’t?), so you’ll see that beautiful, bearded face consistently around the improv scene, at conventions, or anything improv-related.  Support the show
