The No Comfort Zone Program
A few weeks ago, I signed up for an improv class. Basically, the improv class has been pretty disappointing. I only have one prior improv class experience, which was at The Second City. This is not that. The only way I can think to describe this class is to say it feels like the inmates are running the asylum. This is not a good way to learn improv.
In any case, I heard that there were auditions for another improv group last Saturday. I was excited about going, but then I started the improv class that is the inmates running the asylum, and I wasn't sure I wanted to go to the audition. I guess it made me doubt my abilities. But I did some more reading about improv and decided to go.
I went to the audition. I auditioned with another person. There were four people judging us. I didn't think I did very well. I felt disappointed afterwards. Then I was annoyed for the next day.
On Monday, I found out that I got picked to be in the improv group. Which is really exciting. This is a different improv group than the inmates/asylum class one, and I'm excited about it.
I'm nervous about doing something I'm maybe not super great at in front of a group of people, but there are going to be a lot of rehearsals, and I figure doing something is better than doing nothing.
