Football season is here, America, and what better way to celebrate it than by figuring out a way to talk about football and improv? Improv Wins sent an email out to some football fans slash improvisers with one simple question – Which player would make the best troupe mate and why?
Ready to see the responses? Hut hut hike!
Jason Witten would clearly be the best troupe mate. He definitely is a straight man and UBH-er. But think of all the characters he can pull from: pimp-son Dez, knucklehead Martellus Bennett, womanizing Tony Romo, cookie eating Wade Phillips and the list goes on. Awesome double threat! – Jason Sawyer
I tend to like to pack on the punishment for my troupe mates so I’m going to pick Matthew Stafford. The guy is known to be able to take more than a hit or two and keep on going. Anyone has watched this video can attest to this fact. Also, he can put up amazing numbers (scene work) without getting much personal attention (laughs). This makes me and the rest of the troupe look like a bunch of Megatrons and if we need to take him down a peg we can just remind him that he looks like a turtle in this picture. – Brady James
Obviously, Martellus Bennett would be the best troupe member. He got (had) Jerry Jone money, I-phong money and loves Cap’n Crunch. He has more memorable quotes than he does memorable catches though, so “show don’t tell” Marty B. Dang. Also, he’s an Aggie. – Adam Artho
Ray Lewis. First of all, you don’t not laugh when Ray Lewis wants you to laugh. If you have seen his pre-game introduction dance (Twinkletoes) you know this dude is down to get crazy on stage. Also notice the bit of scene work at the beginning. Very nice. Lastly, rumors (Rumor) are he murdered some dudes knowing his boys had his back. Taking chances are huge for improv. UBH Baybay! – Clay Barton
