We had a table read at Hoopla Impro last night and we’re so thrilled. The London improv community came out in force to support some of its own. We also had people watching live on Facebook and Instagram and we captured a bunch of the show.
There’s only so much you can do in a room with two people beating a show into shape. After that it’s so satisfying to hear big laughs where you’ve changed something or an intake of breath at a cliffhanger. Then there’s the certainty around bits that are too long or draggy that they need to move faster and the gratification when a visual bit comes across really well in the stage directions.
All our performers were phenomenal. It was especially funny to hear Tai as Mark do ‘bad’ karaoke and Elly as Lindsay shout at Rob for sleeping in her character’s bath.
