So You Think You’re Funny?

By: Immediate Gratification Players

Age Level: Middle Grades to College

Every year, tens of thousands of acting students dip their toes into the world of "improv comedy." From Harvard University, the Immediate Gratification Players bring a new way to learn this popular art form. Written from the student’s perspective, the book is divided into two sections of six chapters each. Building the Skills gives students training with useful drills, important rules to remember, and a basic tutorial in building your first improv scene. Storming the Stage will explain what no other book does: how to put your product in front of an audience. From creating a troupe to treating your audience right, this is the only book that can make its readers show-worthy. Sample chapters include: A Scene: The Basic Unit of Improv; To Do or Not to Do; Short Form or Long Form?: The Eternal Debate; Developing Format; Creating a Troupe; Auditions: Finding Your Best; Publicity: Turning on the Machine; And the Crowd Goes Wild: A Successful Show. Full of practical tips and techniques. An excellent resource for any theatre book library.
