IMPROV IS A CULT! (Introduction)

Can I get a location? A CULT MEETING!



Is improv a cult? After spending most of my adult life involved in improv comedy I have just recently come to the conclusion that it is, in fact, a cult. I have been involved in almost every aspect of improv comedy – as well as other forms of comedy. But I have learned that it doesn’t matter where the improv is happening, whether it is a new group of beginners, or the old tried and true institutions of improv, the method of controlling people is eerily similar to how Scientology and other cults control their followers. My family has also been touched by Scientology as well so I think I have some insight into this.

Improvisers believe they have found the answers in life. The two most important ones are,  1. Always say YES! 2. Never ask questions. They would do well in Donald Trump’s White House.

Right off the bat I’d like to say that it is probably true that improv is not as vicious as Scientology. People are not held against their will for instance. However, Scientology is probably one of the more extreme cases of cult-like behavior. So if “SC” and other improv organizations are only half of what Scientology is, there is still cause for alarm. In other words, just because Trump isn’t Hitler doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be alarmed when we notice the similarities.
