This is another talk from the guys at ImprovEverywhere. The key take away for me is that as ImprovEverywhere do these projects, someone who might be watching the No-Pants Subway Ride on her own might feel scared and confused. But as the experience of absurdity is shared with other people who are also shared and confused, a community is created. And suddenly the experience is funny and people are able to share the laughter and joy that such absurdity brings out in people.
Is there a point to participating in these ImprovEverywhere projects? If doing it for the fun of it is not a good enough reason, then it’s not for you at all.
