Improv is supposed to be unpredictable, but it’s safe to say that the audience at the most recent Beijing Improv had no idea whatsoever they were about to play a part in this adorable surprise proposal by one of the players.
Skip to 2:10 to see the proposal itself, some context from Beijing Cream:
Tomas was called up on stage as a volunteer and asked if he knew anyone in the crowd that could join him in a little game. He picked his girlfriend, Jenia. The two stood on opposite sides of the stage, acting as the ends of a telephone line, with their words transmitted from one to the other via two Improv performers.
And then, at the 2:10 mark, the performer nearer Tomas says to the other guy, “You know, there’s one thing that I’ve always wanted to say to you.” That’s Tomas’s cue.
