Improv Comedy Techniques : Improv Comedy Techniques: Gibberish


LES MCGEHEE: Similarly, we’re going to try
another one now. We’re going to have a conversation in gibberish. Now, even tough one of us just
going to start with some gibberish, the other person is going to listen carefully and grab
pieces of that gibberish, and reuse them to see if we can end up with stuff that sounds
like a language. Let’s give this a try, it’s just gibberish. You got something you want
to start with? JOE PARSONS: [SOUNDS LIKE] Bli lakatuma yoma somalaga. LES MCGEHEE: [SOUNDS
LIKE] Yoma somalaga tumba, timba gabumba. JOE PARSONS: [SOUNDS LIKE] Bli laga sabaluda.
LES MCGEHEE: [SOUNDS LIKE] Sabaluda? JOE PARSONS: [SOUNDS LIKE] Sabaluda. LES MCGEHEE: [SOUNDS
LIKE] Sabaluda ting tangga tumba. Tumba tangga usalabumba. JOE PARSONS: [SOUNDS LIKE] Tumba
ting chichabala gaoga. LES MCGEHEE: [SOUNDS LIKE] Chaba chabalagaba. We’re not saying
anything, but we’re sure enjoying each other’s language. And by listening carefully, hopefully,
you’ve got an example of how that sounds like a language.
