The 8th Annual Big Sexy Weekend of Improv is soon and we’d like to give you a short intro to the groups performing this year! Read below for some tidbits form Red Dirt Improv from Norman, OK. Catch their show on Saturday July 9th at 7pm.
What do members of Red Dirt Improv find funny? We love when an obvious punchline or joke is coming, then we get a curveball. Also, animal videos.
If your troupe was a mixed drink, what kind would it be?
Crown and Coke. Half of us drink and half of us don’t.
What inspires your improv? Is it a constant or changing idea?
There are certainly some changing ideas, but we always return to short form. We love taking short form sensibilities and packaging into a long free form set. We will pack in jokes, and quickly edit.
How do you guys prepare for a show? Any fun warm-ups or rituals?
We do a lot of circle up pass the focus games…then we get really animated and at peak energy for showtime.
What do you like to do outside of improv?
Game of Thrones, board games, video games, knitting, drinking, eating, and keeping up with superheroes on the big and small screens.
