Job #42 - Professional Laugher
My buddies from the Upstate improv team invited me to their show at the Magnet Theater. They hold an improv competition every Thursday night. At this point, Upstate had won five times in a row! (Later on, they became the second team ever to win eight times in a row. Read their last crazy challenge.)
You may have already seen them. These are the guys behind the Mario Kart movie trailer, Hey Arnold movie trailer, Doug movie trailer, the Super Mario Choose Your Own Adventure, and most recently their Dougstep music video.
Dustin thought it would be a cool idea to hire me as a professional laugher. I value being genuine though, so wasn’t going to give any free laughs. But I didn’t have to fake it. These guys were amazing!
This improv competition had a twist. Right before they went on and performed, they got a surprise challenge: one of them had to exclusively read lines from a play while the other performed.
These guys were incredible. Simply amazing. Wish you could’ve seen it.
Oh wait, you can, because I videotaped the whole thing! I’ll have the link later this week.
