Are you a musician who plays with an improv comedy group, or is interested in trying it? If so, this book is for you! You'll also greatly benefit if you're a music director, improv team leader, improv teacher or coach, improv actor or singer, or just a hardcore Whose Line fan.
In this book I share knowledge gained from my years of improv experience. You'll learn how to do what I do on Whose Line is it Anyway (plus get some insider stories about the show!) It's loaded with tips and pointers about how to play live improv shows, approach long and short form, improvise musicals, be a valuable team player, and lots more.
“The key to our Whose Line gig is really understanding the role
that music plays in the show, and Laura is the queen of that skill.”
- Linda Taylor (guitarist - Whose Line is it Anyway)
"On Whose Line, Laura supplies note-perfect music styles for Wayne Brady, Brad Sherwood, Chip Esten, Jeff Davis, et al, to shine on. But Laura's true genius is that she can make caterwaulers like me sound good and, more important, makes caterwaulers like me feel safe enough to try.
Laura Hall is a damn fine musician, period. There is no musical style she isn't well versed in. With Laura you get experience, knowledge, and a teacher you can trust. What more could you ask for? So get reading, start playing, and have more fun than you're ready for."
When you find yourself working with a tremendous musician who likes to laugh and
is an expert in comedy, improvisation, and teamwork, her name is Laura Hall."
