Improv Team Q&As: Russell Baird
What made you decide to join Improv?
“I joined Improv because it looked like a good time, and I heard it was a more relaxed group.”
What is your favorite Improv memory?
“My favorite memory is probably the third show from last year. I got to see a lot of old friends who had graduated and others who I just hadn’t because of the pandemic.”
Why should FHC students join Improv next year?
“Students should join Improv because it’s a fun and laid-back environment. It helps you get more comfortable with yourself and public speaking and, obviously, improvising.”
What is the most entertaining Improv game, and why?
“The most fun Improv game is a game called ‘Freeze’, where two people act out a scene and work through it until someone else calls freeze and has to change places with one of them, starting a new scene from their exact pose.”
Who do you think is the funniest person during Improv this year?
“My favorite improvisers to watch is either [seniors] Benji [Zorn] or Zach [Guikema]. They both come up with these amazing ideas and always stick them through all the way.”
If you had to eat at any restaurant every single day, what would it be?
“I would eat at Jimmy Johns every day; I feel like sandwiches can last a while.”
What’s a song that reminds you of your Improv experience?
“I don’t really know what song.”
Why should people come watch the show?
“People should come to the show to see some comedy performed by their friends in a way they maybe haven’t before.”
