jordanRAge: 18-24Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Improv ResourceMay 5, 2012jordanRAge: 18-24Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5As a student that started a drama team in my church, I quickly ran into many obstacles including lame skits, expensive resources, and overall bad church drama. After all a while, my team was developing its own style, so finding good scripts was difficult. We found ourselves either trying to act like the original people who performed it (interpreting an interpretation) or changing it so much we could have just wrote it.
Fortunately, the Skit Guys have delivered for me and my team. Their material is solid. It's relevant. It's funny. I saw the Skit Guys live and instantly appreciated their style and delivery.
So what makes this particular resource so great? It is full of "starters" to get your team rolling on improv, as well a providing a base for writing your own skits. The book starts with improv tips and ten games, and then jumps straight into Scripture "situations," providing you with the essentials to start improvising. After that, there's a large collection of "conflicts," giving the set-up for a real-life scene for you to start with. My favorite part has to be the last section, which contain lists of settings, characters, occupations, traits, feelings, props, actions, and lines. This is great to get your creative mind going and for creating your own scripts.
Sure, you're not going to find this a perfect resource, but this book gives an amazing introduction to the world of improv and provides valuable tools to the group that wants to expand its palette of skits. I recommend it to any drama group that has enough experience to start improvising.
