5 ways Improv can help you survive the Zombie Apocalypse

Posted on

As the new year rolls around, it’s time to ponder the Zombie Apocalypse.  Do you have what it takes to escape a mall swarming with undead and over priced handbags?  Do you freeze up when your mom is trying to chew you out, literally?

Well have no fear!  Training in the art of improvisation can save you when the Umbrella Co.  finally releases it’s deadly virus into the water supply.
Here’s how:

5. Quick Thinking.
An improviser’s mind is trained to be as fast as lightning. So when you’re locked in a room with a small bus of undead boy scouts trying to break in to feast on your ankles, your well trained mind will remember that scout’s uniforms are highly flammable. You can then use your lighter to make a zombie flambe’!

4. Practice wielding a wide assortment of items.
An improviser has mimic’d holding almost any item imaginable.  From a hair brush, to a tank’s treads, you’ll be able to deftly wield any item as a brain bashing weapon of doom!

3.  Improvisation.
It’s not just about pretending to be a cat heckling a dog funeral, you can improvise tools and weapons as well!  Just think, you’ll be the MacGuyver of the group!

(For those of you who are too young for that reference, think Daryl from Walking Dead, only more tech saavy, and slightly less rednecky but still with a mullet.)

2. Boredom Killer
No TV, no internet, and no power to run your PS4. So what do you do for fun?  Well an improviser just happens to know a ton of games to play. Plus, we are great at small talk.

1.  Confidence.
Who should lead the ragtag team of survivors?  Why not someone who’s faced down one on the most terrifying things ever, public speaking.
You think a room full of snarling bloodthirsty, rotting corpses is bad? Try a bombing in front of a bar crowd.

So join up and take Sick Puppies Improv training today!
Register for a level 1 class that begins jan 6 on our website right now! Who knows when the dead will rise again!  Muhahah!

    You should list other ideas under each subheading to establish these tips better in your reader. I liked the boyscout idea, however, if you’re trapped in a bus with them, wouldn’t it be a bad idea to light them on fire? You would be burned, sure, but I am thinking more about the immediate lack of oxygen that would occur as the fire consumes it. Just some thoughts. Cool post!
