Pantless subway parties, blue t-shirt Best Buy crashers, black tie swimming and oh-so-much-more.
Absolutely LOVE this TED talk by Improv Everywhere founder and chief mischief-maker, Charlie Todd. Charlie started Improv Everywhere in 2001 when he moved to New York as performer with nowhere to perform. He began staging public missions with ‘undercover agents’ to disrupt otherwise routine situations.
I adore the idea of taking an everyday act – like riding the subway or shopping – and turning it into a shared experience or spectacle. Besides being hilarious, Charlie’s missions are so interesting in that these random public acts create a sense of connection among strangers.
