Hi there! Want to learn more about the site? Good news, you’re in the right place. Unfortunately, this page is still very under construction, so if there’s anything you’d like to know, send us an e-mail and we’ll get back to you.
In reality, improv gives us the tools to connect and support our fellow humans in every endeavor. Improv, in it’s most abstract sense, is working with people and creating, out of nothing, something powerful. Improvoker is a community website devoted to such endeavors. It’s a place for people to ask questions, find information, and be excited about improv.
Why yet another website about improv?
Well, to be honest, there really aren’t many improv related websites. Most of the one’s that do exist are impossible to navigate message-boards (you know which site I’m talking about) with thousands of posts to sort through. Other websites are written from the perspective of seeing shows. While we do see shows, we also wanted to talk about performing improv, stand-up, and acting. In short we wanted to create a website that people who like to watch improv and people who like to perform improv can enjoy together.
How do I send you love letters? Or cease and desist letters?
Well gosh golly jeepers! Feel free to e-mail me Ben at any time. He is notoriously bad with responding to e-mails, so feel free to keep on bugging him if you would like.
No Negative Publicity
Some readers have asked why we, at Improvoker, never write negative articles about performances or improvisers. “You guys love everybody! What’s the deal?!” The plain fact of the matter is, the New York improv community is small and it never pays to shit where you sleep. We refrain from posting negative things on the site, believing that keeping a positive spin on performers means that performers never have to worry about getting bad press from us and readers only read about the cream of the crop.
We do however see bad improv and performances from time to time. If you want us to be brutally honest about a performance, please feel free to let us know. We are completely capable of ripping you a new one, we just wont post it on the site.
We reserve the right to delete, or even in some cases amend with attribution, a poster’s comment to focus the conversation at hand. While we all appreciate heated debate (see above), we do not permit flaming or inherently negative or argumentative comments.
I’ll put you on my site, if you put me on yours! Can we trade links?
No. We don’t trade links. Either we link to your site or we don’t. Our links come from our interest and is the reason people trust our content. Link trading is a form of advertising, if you’d like to advertise with us, we’ll plaster your name on our fore-heads (for the right price).
However, If you have a cause or project that you think we would enjoy by all means contact us, we’d be more than happy to link to it if it catches our interest.
How do you make money?
With day jobs. This ain’t a paying gig yet. However if you’d like to pay us for advertising please contact us, we’d be happy to talk with you.
I wanna’ write!
Well heck, if you think you’ve got what it takes to write for the site, please send us an e-mail. We will just have a quick e-mail interview to see what you want to say, and if it works out, you’re a writer on the site. BOOM!
