Ordinary scene until ridiculous

A helpful exercise for learning Game of the Scene, especially about delaying the funny to build a believable platform and also for spotting the first unusual thing.

  1. Two people on stage.
  2. They are given a situation.
  3. They improvise that situation as normally and realistically as possible, without any attempt to funny.
  4. When something unusual/funny/ridiculous happens (usually by accident) the whole class cheers.
  5. Two new people come on stage and are given a new situation.
  6. Repeat until everyone has been a couple of times.
