Q & A with GC’s Armed Farces President, Sean Noah
Sean Noah, senior mass communication major, shares his past and present state with Armed Farces Improv Troupe, Georgia College’s improv group, how to join and what to expect during performances.
Q: How did you get involved in Armed Farces?
A: It all started my freshman year. My roommate told me about Armed Farces. He invited me to go see a show and that’s how I got started. I joined and did my first show a couple of weeks after training.
Q: Why did you want to become president?
A:A lot of the people who were in the group didn’t want to perform anymore. I basically had two people tell me they didn’t want it to die, so we kept it alive.
Q: Why improv?
A: I’m a theater minor. I love being silly and goofy. I love acting. I love being funny. I’ve always loved comedy. I thought that doing improv would help me be funnier. It’s also just a lot of fun.
Q: Where are practices and how can one join?
A: We have practices every Sunday from 7-9 p.m. in the Bell Hall basement. You just have to keep practicing and then eventually, if they make the cut, we put them up on stage.
Q:Does everyone get to perform?
A: No. We have a constitution. Basically, it says there are two types of members: affiliated members and active members. Active members are those who have committed, come to practice multiple times and have performed multiple times.
Q: How does a typical improv performance go?
A: We have a whole bunch of improv games – usually 11 – that precede every week. Some of the games even involve the audience.
Q: When and where do you perform?
A: We perform every Thursday night at 8 p.m. at Blackbird Coffee.
