Improv Games Defined

What are Improv Games?

In reality, this is part of the definition of short form improvisation.

Face2Face Improv Games are: Any exercise or improvised scene that employs a type of ‘hook’ or ‘schtick’ to play with. The audience sees this and tags along for the ride, but FIRST the actors receive a suggestion or idea from them.

IE – Question Tennis uses nothing but questions in the scene as the ‘hook.

IE – In ‘Censor’, the moderator rings a bell multiple times during the scene, thereby forcing the actor(s) to change what they just said, into a new statement.
