Ode To Improvisation

Today we're bringing you an Ode To Improvisation by our very own London Theatre Direct blogger, Harriet Wilson.

If improv tickles your fancy, don't miss the incredibly talented team performing completely new, improvised musicals every single night in Showstopper! The Improvised musical at London's Apollo Theatre. Find out more about this show in Harriet's Showstopper! review here: Showstopper! You Don't Want To Be That Person Who Didn't See This Show

You've mastered the art
Of learning a part,
Now those days are gone;
You're on,
And it's all about seizing
'The Moment'.

But -
'The Moment'? Just passed.
Could you not be arsed
To get in gear,
And steer
Towards some sort of a plot?
Of course not.

The key is to rhyme;
Do it all of the time,
You see, I'm
Just fine
With pretending that no rhyme
Falls flat.

And, speaking of which,
The joke that you just pitched
Fell flat in the mud -
A dud.
They said improv. was painless.
They're brainless.
