“The best thing about improv is that no matter how bad your show is, it’s only 30 minutes, and never exists again. The worst thing is no matter how good your show is, it’s only 30 minutes, and never exists again.” -Mick Napier
If I have learned anything from my time at Second City, it is that improv is a beautiful art and is greatly misunderstood. It is something that is constantly fleeting because that audience, that energy, and those thoughts will never be there again. Each night is electric and can never be attempted to be reproduced again. And no matter what night it is, there are people on that back line that have your back. So, in the spirit of improv, there is a project that needs that same electricity and support. I met Marc Warzecha three years ago, first as my teacher and then as a boss. To say that Marc is exceptional would be putting it lightly. His passion for his art oozes out of his very being, and he believes in what he creates more than most people that I have met in Los Angeles.
Marc’s next project “Improv Legends” (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/improvlegends/improv-legends) is just a continuation of his passion and an extension of the passion of improvisers every where.
“Improv Legends is a new series of documentary shorts exploring the art of improvisation from a wide variety of angles and perspectives.
Filmmakers and long time improvisers Joel Veenstra and Marc Warzecha started this passion project as a ‘love letter to improvisation.’”
And the only thing that is missing is you. Every independent project needs supporters, and all you need to do is say, “Yes, And”.
