Here is another clip from Fringe for your online enjoyment.

We are working on planning for another YEGprov performance. More information coming soon.

Punishment” is a game where the actors get a suggestion from the audience and try to do a serious scene. If they make the audience laugh they get hit with a pool noodle as their “punishment.”

When thinking about this twitter improv show, we wanted to create some new games that would make use of what twitter can do.

This is a game we invented called “Business Presentation.”

People can tweet in photos or images from their phones. The improvisors get a product suggestion from the audience (in this case toothbrushes). Then they have to pitch their product to the board or shareholders using random images as their PowerPoint. They have no idea what images might be coming up, but they have to make them work to sell their product or idea.

Here are Randy and Devin pitching toothbrushes.

As of this morning we have managed, to our utter amazement and delight, to be trending #YEGprov THIRD in Edmonton. The only items above us currently are #yeg and #yegfringe.

Thanks to ALL of our amazing crowds so far this festival. You guys have truly embraced our little social media-improv experiment with open phones and fast fingers. For this I thank you wholeheartedly.

Just to show I’m not full of hooey, here’s a screen capture from just a few minutes ago. (click to enlarge)
