Absent Minded Comedy presents Hitchhiking Emotions
WARNING: Not safe for work
Looking for edgy comedy without a script, than you have found Absent Minded Comedy. The place to be for your laughs that you can’t talk about at the office tomorrow morning.
This video captures the cast of Absent Minded Comedy performing a live improv comedy late night performance at the Laugh Factory in NYC. All hell breaks lose on stage when various emotions take over the performers as each one enters the “vehicle”. This video may be offensive to some, but outrageously hilarious to most.
Bring Improv Comedy to your College Campus. Party time for your next greek event, comedy night, homecoming, orientation night, or public comedy series at the theaters and clubs.
We have crazy edgy comedy shows as well as tamer shows great for all audiences. The cast regularly performs at corporate events and even K-12 outreach and family audiences.
Check out live comedy in NYC seven nights every week.
Want to play hitchhiking emotions with friends? Easy! And this game is awesome at teaching both use of emotions in your performance and pantomime.
Usually played with four performers, the first is the car’s driver. Each player is assigned an emotion. When each player enters the car, the entire car takes on the new player’s assigned emotion. Once all four players are in the car, the players leave in reverse order. So player four leaves, than three, than two , than the driver is alone to wrap up the scene.
As seen in this version, you can add little bonus “ask fors” from the audience. For instance, where is the driver headed? What kind of vehicle is the driver driving.
As with any improv comedy theater game, after you play this one for a while, try to create original ways to change the game and make it your own.
Remember, if performing or teaching to young kids “HITCHHIKING is bad!”
