Do you have Ambition?

Have you heard of a card game called Ambition? It is now waiting for you as a really great app on the Play store! i should perhaps start with a disclaimer - i messaged Robert Acton, a friend of mine, who designed this game, to tell him i wanted to write a blog post. This is not for any benefit or gift or payment, i just thoroughly LOVE the game and want to see [...]

Bernie memes part II

You'd think after a week of Epic Bernie memes that we would be all Bernie'd out... But there were SO MANY of them and so many of them were SO GOOD that every day i am discovering some more that feel like they should jump into my Top 3 and with one or two exceptions, it's not wise to say 'My Best Berne Meme' because you know five minutes later it will be replaced. [...]

What did Bernie meme?

It's been a while since we saw a meme take off since today's Bernie Sanders' meme. And i feel like everyone has seen all of them, but just seeing today how so many people are taking so much delight on my Twitterer feed from the few i posted, i thought it was worth sticking them in a blog post so more people can join in the fun. Bernie Sanders arrives at the Inauguration of [...]

A Christmas Carol Parody Music Video story…

Make a Christmas Carol Parody Lockdown Music Video, they said. It will be fun, they said. Okay, so no-one actually suggested i make a Christmas Carol Parody Lockdown Music Video and it actually was quite a lot of fun and especially hearing and reading people's comments and feedback has been quite delightful to this point, but still. What was i thinking? With an extremely sore neck [Danny Glover in 'Lethal Weapon' was right!] and [...]

Whose Live Show [ish] is it anyway? Spoiler: It’s ours!

What does it take to be able to get the opportunity to once more watch Improguise Live? Well, a corporate doing some work on cybersecurity with its staff and realising the need to add in a whole lot of cyber-security-themed fun at the end, that's what. We got locked down [but we got up again...] Ain't never gonna keep us down. That's right - Chumbawuba has got nothing on us and we in fact [...]

Roz to the occasion: A Brett Fish Hair Adventure

A much-anticipated-and-needed trip the Roz Hair Studio happened last week! This is the story of the new [amazing] hairstyle and hair colour of Brett "Fish" Anderson... But no good story that ends this well can take place without a horrifying Before picture: i mean, to be fair, that's the Instagram version... then there was this: Not my best work. And especially if you are one Valerie Duffield Anderson - very much not [...]

40 Character Stories for Children/Kinders/Abantwana

Character Stories for Children will have presented 40 stories by the end of this week... What started out as a little dream and a conversation with some Improv friends has grown into a beautiful little family of wacky characters. Strange and interestingly quirky people who arrive at around 3pm every afternoon to share a story, poem or song with the young [and not so young!] children who are stuck in lockdown. Last week we [...]

Character Stories for Children: Two weeks in.

Just two weeks ago, an idea was born. i can't even remember where the inspiration came from actually but one day Character Stories for Children was not a thing and the next day it was. We have reached the end of our second week with 10 videos and two live stream Saturday morning shows under our belts. Character Stories has not been an overnight sensation. We haven't gone viral. And we don't have a [...]

A channel is born

And after a dramatic YouTube 2 minute countdown, the 'Character Stories for Children' channel was born. Born? Do YouTube channels get born. i mean, i guess it was conceived about five days ago... Based on a character i have dabbled with called Erik [with a K] who speaks/shouts people's favourite poems or stories at them with a bad German'ish accent. i had an idea to create some stories for children stuck at home during [...]

Character Stories for Children

i don't have children. But i know a lot of people who do. Many who i really really like!  Which is one of the reasons i came up with the idea of Character Stories for Children #CSC i used to have a character called Erik [with a K] who would read poems and stories in a bad shouty german accent [my nieces in particular love my bad shouty german accent and so it definitely [...]
