Taxi Driver

Taxi Driver


One improviser plays a ‘big’ character who drives a taxi (an alien, a vampire, an ancient being, a psychopath, etc – they choose). The other improviser steps into their cab playing very close to themselves. They cannot get out of the taxi… At the end of the scene, the passenger becomes a new character as the driver and another improviser steps in as themselves. This exercise from IO.
