    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Renegade Improv

One of the most popular college weekend activities in Duluth is Renegade Improv. Every Friday and Saturday at the Teatro Zuccone two teams of improvisers compete for points awarded by a referee in various games. The improvisers create characters, scenes, and songs on the spot to try and make the audience laugh. It’s a bit like the TV show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”. My favorite game is “Return Counter.” One actor serves as a customer service rep working the returns counter at a department store. The other actors are customers wishing to return an item. However, they aren’t allowed to tell the customer service rep what they’re returning. Instead, they give clues through dialogue and the rep must get the customer to guess what he is returning as well as why they are returning it. To begin the game, the guesser goes into the hall while audience members shout items of various sizes. One night, two of my suggestions were taken in a row. Jody had to return a popcorn stand because it only spoke French. It was especially funny because as he was returning the item he kept saying, “I don’t know why I am returning this, it’s probably the coolest item I have ever owned.” I have also had the opportunity to go up on stage as a audience participant. Basically, it’s the place to be.
