Yes, and . . .

On Saturday night, a few members of my sketch comedy troupe "Earnest Borg9" will perform an improv show at the Creation Grand Slam convention. We will be playing SciFi-oriented games, and we will improvise the Lost Episode of The Next Generation, based on the audience's suggestions. There are even a few games where a couple of audience members can join us on stage and be part of the fun.

Holy crap, man. I am so excited!

Unlike sketch comedy, where we have to rehearse like crazy to present a tight show, improvisors can all "work out" a few times together, and know that when we perform for a real audience, the show will be great. Even though we're making everything up as we go along, I always feel less pressure for an improv show than I do for a sketch show. Weird.
