Episode 2 — Masquerade
Posted 17 November 2011 - 04:00 PM
One suggestion about the podcast for the future. Last episode did a fantastic job at setting up multiple scenes for each suggestion, which not only gave the show an exciting pace, but stacked funny on top of funny. While this episode had good moments, and I know that the nature of improv is being spontaneous and not forcing the issue, I do think changing things after a couple minutes would ensure a scene doesn't go overlong.
For example, in the first episode with the museum curator scene played by Andy Daly was so dynamic and funny because the improvisers kept changing up the scene and adding to the overall story, which in an audio medium is great to listen to. It's fun to hear the performers dealing with a challenge at breakneck speed, and that was absolutely reflected in that episode. Matt and the gang don't have the luxury of feeling out the audience to know when to move on from a conversation or add to what's going on, so perhaps building more scenes based on the opening discussion would fix that problem.
