The Backline - An Improv Podcast

171 - Break the Scene

October 3, 2019

Trying to find an ending can be tough.  Sometimes we're hoping for someone to sweep, or a joke big enough to bring down the lights.  Other times, we pray to the improv gods for some kind of divine intervention to save us from our own truly horrible scene. In this episode, Rob and Adam discuss creating momentum, pushing towards an end, and using heightening to control how long you're onstage.  Also, HBO's Succession, Malcolm Gladwell, and Adam talks about hockey on TWO different occasions.
