Improv & Stand up: Good Comedians Do Both!

When I first starting doing comedy 15 years ago, there was a clear division between improv and stand up.  No doubt there are major differences.  Stand ups prepare their material and polish their jokes until they have it just right.  Improvisers literally clear their heads right before they go on stage.  Stand up's are on stage alone with just a mic.  Improvisers rely on their scene partners and they nearly tune out the audience.  

Now days having both skills is almost a must for young comedians.  And for good reason too.  Both arts steal from each other constantly!  Some stand ups are known for their ability to improvise.  I've seen stand ups throw away half their jokes to chase a bit that they are coming up with right on the spot.  And I've seen Improvisers break that fourth wall and engage the audience just like a stand up.  I've seen stand ups go after a heckler using the heckler as a sort of scene partner and build a moment that wasn't planned and would be tough to recreate.  And I've seen improvisers recognize an opportunity to deliver a monologue or a solo moment with the polish and timing of a stand up.  

Point is comedy is comedy.  And yeah there are differences between all the disciplines, but the goal is to make an audience laugh right?  So why not equip yourself with all the tools?  Bottom line is, stand ups take an improv class and improvisers take a stand up class.  And don't forget, Flappers University teaches both!
