    The fact that the speaker was in on it made it go from cool and fun to stupid and annoying.

    I`m growing to hate ImprovEverywhere. Same sh*t, different day.

    maddux32, I don`t know for sure... I guess it just seems too "forced" if the speaker was in on it too. It was no longer an improve prank, but a production, and that just seems opposite of what the group claims to be.

    ImprovEverywhere would be fine if it involved improvisation, instead it involves highly choreographed skits.

    a little behind the scenes this is how almost all their `improv` takes place

    @pmarren

    I completely agree. At first I was like "poor guy, but that was a pretty good prank".. then found out he was in on it and went "drat this bull poo, improv isn`t scripted."

    @darkmagic14n, strictly speaking all performances are improvisations. You`re thinking of spontaneous improvisation, but rehearsed improvisation is just as valid.

    @nayrbarr: If all performances are improvisations, even the planned and rehearsed ones, then that renders the word "improvisation" a bit meaningless, does it not?
