5.0 su 5 stelle A book that teaches the subject on the cover? That seems too easy! 18 aprile 2014
Di Ryan Price - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The opening of this book contains a criticism of the "gold standard" improv books like "Truth in Comedy", as well as some in-person Improv classes for failing to clearly and unambiguously teach the student the subject.

My guess is that Ben must be an engineer, computer scientist or mathematician. He takes a cut-and-dried stance early in the book, that moves to practical and anecdotal. He does not dip in to a cadre of celebrity quotes and Del Close eulogies, which is totally fine with me, since 8 out of 10 improv books seem to.

If you are looking to start a long-form troupe, and you don't have a reliable mentor, I would pick up this book and "Improv for Actors" by Dan Diggles. If you like punchy, high-comedy, fast-laugh improv, then add the UCB Comedy Manual, with the warning that UCB is laser-focused on "the game". Ben Hauck gives you the tools you need to create a range of different kinds of stories, while Matt Walsh, Matt Besser and Ian Roberts will teach you to find the game as fast as possible, and heighten it. For some people, this style is exactly what they are looking for. For me, I want to create a compelling story first, and see the comedy emerge from players doing something genuine and believable enough that when they say something absurd, it becomes hilarious.

That said, this book really helped me when I was looking to teach my group The Harold. If I could recommend only one book it would be Dan Diggles' Improv for Actors, with this being a close second.

5.0 su 5 stelle Terrific Improv Book! 7 marzo 2014
Di JW Ho - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I recently adopted Ben Hauck’s “Long-Form Improv” for my intensive summer course at Yale. My job was much easier than in previous summers because my students read, understood and loved Hauck’s book. The author’s analysis of moves in terms of game theory, clear explanation of conflict and desire and discussion of ideation, relationships, attitude, heightening, endowing and justification all helped my students step off back wall with courage, play the games they discovered together and support each other appropriately. They performed the tightest Harolds I have seen from beginning students — and that after only five-and-a-half weeks of daily instruction. I would definitely adopt “Long-Form Improv” as a textbook again. In fact, I would love to see a whole sequel from this author just on group scenes.

5.0 su 5 stelle Totally Helpful For Actors 21 giugno 2013
Di Aimee Davison - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Ben Hauck's book is very methodical and clear in its approach to teaching the fundamentals of long-form improv. What I found most valuable about reading it was that, as an actor, I could easily apply what it teaches about conflict and scene work to my commercial acting work. Reading this book is SO much better than taking vague improv classes that only give you confusing emotional instructions and tips. "Long-form Improv" makes the process and the art clear to improv and commercial actors. If I was a drama teacher, I'd make my class read it and use it as a manual instead of just blathering on about saying "yes" and "committing to your character." :)

Di Ismael Alfaro - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I had been performing short-form improv for 10 years when I had the desire to start studying long-form. This book was one of the many I read before starting classes. It stood out for it's clarity and approach to performing long-form improv. Definitely a book you want in your library if you are serious about performing improvisation.

5.0 su 5 stelle unconventional way to look at a conventional form 26 novembre 2014
Di Robert Smith - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I love this book. Hauck looks at the game in improv as conflict. He describes the game as one would describe the concept in game theory. Easy to read and follow. I will be using this book as a reference for my studies in improv.
