At a recent Beijing Improv show, Tomas was called up on stage as a volunteer and asked if he knew anyone in the crowd that could join him in a little game. He picked his girlfriend, Jenia. The two stood on opposite sides of the stage, acting as the ends of a telephone line, with their words transmitted from one to the other via two Improv performers.
And then, at the 2:10 mark, the performer nearer Tomas says to the other guy, “You know, there’s one thing that I’ve always wanted to say to you.” That’s Tomas’s cue. We can only guess how high his heart leapt that very moment.
Beijing Improv’s next show is September 28.
