Taz Cable reached out to the local media folks who have been guests on his “Bowl of Oh!” show. Would we participate in a fundraiser for a charity called Guitars Not Guns? He used the magic word that made me instantly say yes, “improv.”
Four of my colleagues at the radio ranch and three local news anchors have signed on, as has Ashley Johnston from “The Biggest Loser.” I offered to teach a few improv games to Ashley, Marc, Kim, Gretchen, T the ROP, Tearsa Smith, Michele Silva and Erin Donovan. I also asked any available members of Einstein Simplified to help out. About half the troupe will miss the event because of their annual trek to Dragon*Con.
Now I have to figure out which improv games would best showcase the talents of the TV and radio people. Any suggestions?
