The Backline - An Improv Podcast

56 - Persona

October 7, 2015

This week Rob and Adam discuss stage personas improvisers often adopt when "playing themselves" when they first come onstage, take the suggestion, or between scenes.  But what does a stage persona actually mean? How can you charm an audience before you begin improvising and get them on your side?  Also Rob interviews the producer of Two Strikes, Jason Agnew and how persona is utilized to improve the experience of your show.  Also a listener question is answered about "How to jump on a grenade."
