Improv in Azeroth

August 3, 2006

The House of Uster, my Warcraft guild, performed “Warcraft Prov” at the Del Close Marathon last weekend. Some photos here.

It was pretty poor improv, frankly. We never rehearsed and were still discussing the form up until the minute we went on stage. Basically, we just stood on stage in bizarre costumes and declared details about Warcraft. Our audience was surprisingly gaming-literate: the warcraft-specific jokes got a lot of laughs. It’s also possible the audience was just really drunk.

The guy in the skull mask is legendary rapper MC Chris. And that’s an actual girl next to him.

The weekend was crazy. I was hired at 1pm on Friday to produce a segment on the marathon for Current TV. The kick-off event was later that day at 4:30 pm, so there wasn’t much time to prepare.
