This improv game is in the following improv game categories:
Description2 actors start an improvized scene. At any point in time another player can call Freeze. This player then tags out one of the 2 actors, and takes his place. Both players then start a new scene, justifying their positions.
NotesThe way this improv game is played quite often goes a bit against good improv, as many groups hardly take the time to develop a story line. If played this way, it`s more a game of wit, and you would probably use it early in a show as an audience (and player) warm-up.
Alternatively, you can take your time and play every scene for several minutes, see what develops, and only at the end of each scene tag into another scene.
