Theatre Game of the Week #34

This is a great game for secondary school kids or if you're teaching improv to university level students. They have to have a really good gasp of English to play and be able to respond quickly to questions.

This is a great improv prep game for exam time when you're working on the concept of good responses and bad responses. It's based off of a game on the tv show, "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

Game Name: World's Worst

Materials Needed: Chairs

Kids Needed: 5+

Time Needed:10+

 Here are some examples from "Whose Line Is It Anyway?":

World’s Worst thing to say on your first day in prison: Who here loves to crochet?

World’s Worst thing to say on a romantic date: Let’s see. You had the Big Mac. You owe me 32hkd.

World’s Worst thing to say at a Major Award Ceremony: Thank you. As I accept this major award, I’d like to thank everyone I’ve ever met. Jim. Sarah. Bob. Shirley. Tom, etc.


Step 1) Have the kids write down situations where their partners can respond.

Step 2) Have the kids sit in 2 lines facing each other. Have them give their situation:

"The World's Worst thing you could say....(insert situation here) is.."

Partner responds

Class giggles

Step 3) Go down the line until all the kids have gone. In the end vote on your favorite.

In the end) You've worked on responding the questions in bad ways.
