Now It’s Personal, part of Singapore Improv Festival


Maestro finale that pits improviser against improviser – last one standing

None of us are as funny as all of us – except at the end of Maestro, one of us will be funnier. Teamwork, cooperation, artistic merit – everything goes out of the window as we throw one improviser from every team – the sacrificial victim scapegoat volunteer to compete for your favour.

That’s right – you are audience, director, judge judy and executioner! You decide who stays on-stage, who walks, who makes you laugh, and who makes you cry with laughter. From 20 improvisers, only one will remain to be your Maestro for the evening.


About the show

*Maestro (or Micetro) is a format also conceived by Keith Johnstone. Told to devise a show that 50 people could play in, Keith pitted improvisers against each other in a way that would gradually eliminate them from the stage. Players will be grouped at random, perform a scene based on audience suggestions, and the audience decides by cheering or applause how many points each group will be awarded. From large group games to 2-person scenes to monologues - it’s like a tournament, but one with often horrifically arbitrary scoring and thus NOT TO BE TAKEN TOO SERIOUSLY. We’re all friends here. Really.
