Mr Miyagi

22nd May 2012

We've now had our second lesson at being funny, and we also had an incredible moment of truth!

Our teacher is Logan Murray, and he said that he's currently being a bit like Mr Miyagi from the Karate Kid and I couldn't agree more! I say that because we're doing loads of things that seem to have nothing to do with putting on a stand up comedy show (a bit like like the karate kid waxing on, waxing off and painting the fence etc).

This week we played some games, the first was three headed expert, this is where 3 people do a talk on a topic as if they were one person, so when Logan clicks his finger the next person has to carry on the sentence, even if it's in the middle of a word! Its good fun, and very funny to watch - although quite what it tells us about comedy I'm not sure, I'm just putting my trust in Logan Miyagi and hoping it comes good.

The second exercise was a writing one - we all wrote down something nice, then went round the group and followed the good thing with a negative thought...again, not sure why - but we'll see!

The best bit for me though was Logan trying to encourage us to find our inner idiots - so he kept telling us not to talk like grown-ups...in fact he kept saying "you're not a newsreader"... I didn't like to tell him.
