Bouncing Around the Blogosphere: Improv Everywhere

Improv Everywhere is not new. The group was founded in ’01 and has been getting decent press since ’05. But they’re new to me, and I got a kick out of reading their blog posts. This NYC-based group specializes in “causing scenes of chaos and joy in public places.” Some of my favorites:

As this couple was leaving their courthouse ceremony, Improv Everywhere invited them to an improv reception complete with champagne, cake and a wedding party.

Apparently, the first No Pants Subway Ride was so sucessful, it's turned into an annual event.

And this is synchronized swimming in a public fountain. Hilarious.

Another of Improv Everywhere’s stunts involved organizing a group of 50 redheads to protest a Manhattan Wendy’s and their “racist” logo. Another coup: infiltrating a Best Buy store with 80 people dressed in khakis and blue shirts, who actually helped customers. Each misson is thoroughly documented, and the group has published its first book. Check it out at http://improveverywhere.com/.
