Spitfire Spotlight: Jojo White
What's your day job?
Water technician, I make sure folks have high quality H20.
Do you have any hobbies outside of improv?
I hoop, go on adventures, travel.
What drew you to improv?
I would have to say that the freestyle and unscripted comedy with others is what personally drew me to improv.
What do you like to do most on stage?
I absolutely love finding and playing games within the scenes. Specially multiple layered games.
What makes a good scene in your opinion?
Everything has an energy and rhythm. What I think makes a good scene is a combination of good energy and a smooth rhythm along with some kind of meaning or truth that connects with the audience. What also makes a good scene is when each person contributes information or gifts to each scene.
What's the most memorable moment you've had at Spitfire?
Honestly it was when I had a bad show. I learned a lot from the veterans of the theater and they gave me a different outlook on the bad show instead of allowing it to keep me down. Really, having a bad show allowed me to receive growth.
