I am excited to let you know that if plans don't miscarry, my book, "Vent Without Scripts" will soon be finished and be available.

I started writing this two years ago, and it's only now that I'm able to do the finishing touches.

This book contains my take on how to use improv games in your vent act. Yes, I believe you can face and entertain your audience without always relying on scripts!

I've developed these techniques and methods after years of doing them on stage before live audiences. Hope this little offer becomes helpful to our vent community. Thanks!

Improv is very important in this vent's act. Back in my Kansas University days(I took both immprovisation and theatre classes. My work with Comedy Sportz (an improvisational game based show) for 3 seasons, still has pay off for my vent and workshops that I present to drama classes.

I look forward to hearing more about your book.

E-book would be great. Think what you'll save on postage!

Ony... a DVD might be faster to make and cheaper to produce.

I also have a book being reviewed by a publishing firm, an autobiography in Filipino but as it turns out, its more expensive and more time consuming than a DVD.

Would you consider a DVD instead so you can include actual performance excerpts of the routines?

For this I think a book trumps a DVD. At the moment I am in the process of doing a DVD on kids magic, and a book to cover the same material. The book takes a bit longer to produce, but contains way more information, and is cheaper to bring out than the DVD.

I would not order a DVD of this, but I will be ordering the book - even if it is not an e-book!

An e-book is a very easy, cheap and quick way of publishing.

I don't think Ony has plans to make a DVD, mine was just a suggestion...

Because of the nature of improvisation comedy, I believe the book is the way to go and because I consider myself more as a writer than a performer, I am more comfortable explaining my ideas on the page than on the stage.

Anyway, the book will be done soon and I'll brainstorm (with my figures, haha!) on how we can best offer this info to our community.

I know my good friend Wanlu has seen me perform my vent improvs live here in Manila... and how I do them (and how other vent can, too) is what this book is about.

That is so cool Ony! As always, you remain generous and helpful to your fellow vents.

I have seen Ony rock and kill with his improv routines and unfortunately the book won't be able to show how people actually react... perhaps a DVD of an actual performance can follow after the book. Smile

I won't hesitate getting BOTH Smile
