Four or five improvisers sit on chairs in a line. They to lean forward so the audience can’t see their faces. They are asked to pull lots of stupid facial expressions and to hold one when the host says ‘stop’. The improvisers sit up, still holding the expression and each, in turn, to say whatever their character is thinking. They don’t need to say why they look like this and they won’t be able to hear any of the other character monologues. Keep the monologues short and speak a few times before running it again with different faces.
