In Honor of Father’s Day: Advice from our Dads
We’ve collected pearls of wisdom provided by our fathers over the years, recapped here to benefit from their life experience:
Always give 110% percent!
If tickets are $10, you should pay $11.
Don’t get into a pissing contest with a skunk.
If a skunk comes on stage, run!
Drive for show, and putt for dough
Practicing the fundamentals is what makes BBI a quality troupe.
Measure twice, cut once.
If traffic is bad, look twice before you cut in.
Skate to where the puck is going to be.
Anticipate the punchline, and be ready to laugh before anyone else gets it!
Aim for the fences!
Our scenes are big and bold; the higher the stakes, the funnier the mistakes!
Neither a borrower nor a lender be.
Don’t forget your money and try to give BBI an IOU for your ticket!
99% of success is showing up.
You can’t laugh at our jokes if you don’t come.
If someone asks you to walk a mile, go two.
You, too, can join us on stage. If we ask for a volunteer, jump in! We’ll make sure you have fun and look good.
If it’s supposed to stick, and doesn’t, use duct tape.
If it’s not supposed to stick, and does, use WD-40.
Just what it says. Any good toolkit has both.
The Skinny: BBI performs short form, improvisational comedy. Audience suggestions will fuel short scenes of hilarity, each lasting 4-7 minutes, with some kind of twist to challenge the players. We might be required to rhyme, speak in gibberish, perform in the style of a western, or only move where audience members direct. The characters, scenarios, dialogue and resolutions are made up on the spot. It’s a challenge for the actors, and a night of madcap comedy for the audience. Join us!
