Improv Tips #136 – Set Improv Games For The Harold BONUS – The Invocation (2019)

Set Improv Games For The Harold – The Invocation
(Bonus Episode)

The Harold is considered by many to be the mother of all long form improv but teaching and learning the Harold can be tricky at times. We, as improvisers, spend most of our time (as we should) on the scenes that make up the Harold but often ignore or just look blankly at the group game parts of the Harold, but to have a great Harold, every part of the Harold needs to be great…even the group games AND the opening. So, in this BONUS episode Paul Vaillancourt shares one of his favorite openings – The Invocation.

Whether you’re doing improv comedy, playing improv games, using improv in your acting classes or expressing yourself with some other kind of improvisation, Improv Tips is here to help you on your improv journey.
