Advice for Two Person Improv Teams
Don’t be fooled by that title. I have no advice for Two Person improv teams. Instead I am asking for other people to give advice. I’m often asked for advice by people starting their own 2 person groups. I understand this! Will and I perform as the Brothers Hines and are both teachers. We should have great advice! But I don’t! Not really. Maybe Will does? Sometimes people also ask...
Will Hines: mom story →
williebhines: My mother died of cancer in 1987 when she was 40. I was 16 and memories can be hazy and unreliable. But I have a memory that reminds me of what an understanding person she was: First day of my kindergarten, a parent accompanied each student. So my mom came to class with me. At the end of the day,… My mom got sick when I was 10, and died when I was 12 so while I have some...
This is a video I took a month ago during a Code Red rehearsal. I’m not going to explain what’s going on in this scene because it doesn’t matter. Just watch James and Zack dance and wait for Joel’s scene stealing performance. I honestly watch this video once a week.
williebhines: connorratliff: “CLARK KENT” a short film In anticipation of the upcoming Man Of Steel, here is a short film I made using only the “Clark Kent” scenes from Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978). I removed any overt references to Clark being Superman, and I changed the musical score. You COULD still view it as if he’s really Superman, or you could find your own meaning. I...
UCB Conspiracy: The "Brothers" Hines →
Guys, Will and I might not be related (according to this very convincing expose)… ucbconspiracy: We’re related A likely story. To a regular person it may seem that Kevin and Will Hines seem similar enough that would be, as they purport, brothers. They are both performers at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in New York and perform together at the East Village location as...
Timmy Loves Julie: UNDERRATED COMEDY: THE MOTION... →
timmylovesjulie: Last night Dave Bluvband and I brought up comedies that we thought were underrated (or wrongfully critically maligned or just forgotten). We then decided we need to make a master list. Feel free to add on to this list but show your work. 1. THE LONELY GUY: The Jerk is a great movie but I would… I love The Lonely Guy! So good! As for not on this list I also really...
Wonderful, Thanks.: Season Two, Episode Twelve -... →
I got to be on the @WonderfulThanks podcast with Ramsey and Adam. Super fun… I particularly enjoyed discussing Garfield being a conservative. But it’s all fun… so listen to it!… wonderfulthanks: Word: Flip Guest: Kevin Hines Bio: If you like improv, then you already like Kevin Hines. Kevin performs at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NY every Saturday night...
This is the third trailer for the new Superman movie. It doesn’t do much to convince me it will be good. First, I didn’t like Watchmen, and while I enjoyed 300 - it wasn’t a great movie either. So Zack Snyder doesn’t fill me with confidence. Second, these trailers focus so much on a somber mood and not nearly enough on fun action. Superheroes are action based characters....
johneveretttrowbridge: Can you guys tell me what movies I should be looking forward to? I think Dark Knight Rises/Avengers/Prometheus were the last MUST SEE movies. And now that I’ve seen Room 237 I don’t really know what is on the horizon. Anybody got any recommendations? Currently I am mostly excited about Elysium. The new film by the director of District 9. I am also excited for...
Are pictures stupid for everyone else?
uncannybrettwhite: Like, posts with multiple pics, you can only slide-show backwards but not forwards. You used to be able to click on a pic and see the edges of the following one on the right side of the screen and then go to the next pic. Now you can only do that backwards…is it just me? Now to look at a group of pictures I have to click on one, then click out, then click on the next one, then...
Thoughts after seeing Jurassic Park in 3D
timmylovesjulie: 1. Why was the triceratops sick? 2. Jeff Goldblum is the best. 3. John Hammond should have died at the hands (or jaws) of the beasts, Dr. Frankenstein style. 4. I really wish we could go back in time and re-do Jurassic Park 2. There was a lot of potential for this as a log running franchise and that film really bungled it. There’s a good JP sequel yet to be made. 1) it ate...
timmylovesjulie asked: Wonder Man in the Safari Jacket is one of the best superhero costumes of all time? Correct? Name others that are also great.
More great scenes from classes/rehearsals
continued from here Jeremy Bent and Will Storie as two brothers who built an aquarium on the ocean floor. That scene had more sub-games then Harolds have scenes. Brandon Gulya clutching a dead Kate Riley. Who he killed one line into a scene (because of an exercise I was having Sandino do). Gulya spent the rest of the scene apologizing to Kate. Sean Casey and Dylan Donahue as a couple where...

halphillips asked: You wake up one day and realize you are somehow in the Marvel Universe. You're still just you, no special powers or anything, but you're in the Marvel Universe, and you know everything you currently know about it (i.e. secret identities). What do you do?
I’m done answering questions for now. Though if you ask another one I’ll eventually answer it. Thanks!
