The loving clock

Babygirl, what time is it?

Clown College Instructor Confession

Sometimes, you teach a drop-in improv class, and a dude who’s never done improv before pitches to your class a “Loving Clock” (because that’s the nature of the game you’re playing – and that was the suggestion he received) – and for the rest of your week (and maybe life) you sweetly say:

“Babygirl, I love you!”

… every single time you check to see what time it is.

Have you heard an improv quote that’s either a) positively reinforced your attitude permanently or b) you’ve never been able to get out of your head? What was it?

Be Relentlessly Positive

And don’t try to be clever.

What?  These are two of the things I thought were crucial to good comedy, bitter negativity, self-deprecation and some sexy sexy smarts.  Isn’t that why so many of the writers for The Simpsons and Conan etc.,  went to Harvard?  (Or was that just Conan?)

 

I love you Conan.

 

Oh wait.  There it is.  There’s the positivity.

I get it now.
