Attention Twitter users. Are your tweets in our new podcast?
Tim Coyne and I have whipped up a new Internet radio comedy program called, The Nothing Show. Each week we’ll be chatting for 5 or 10 minutes about nothing specifically. Here’s the catch, our dialogue will be based on your Twitter tweets.
If you’re on Twitter I recommend you check out the show. Even if you’re not on Twitter, it’s worth listening to just for the randomness of it – funny stuff. Experienced improv actors may recognize that we borrowed the concept from a game called “Sentences”.
In the game, audience members are given blank strips of paper to jot down a random line of dialogue. The strips are collected by the actors and scattered on the stage. Then, the actors create a story using only the audience’s suggestions as the script.
We hope you enjoy it! Find us on iTunes here.
