    I wondered if I could borrow some of your brains to give some suggestions for my improv team.

    We are working on a character event where they create a character based on the audience suggestion to describe a person.

    They are like a _____ (For instance a tiny butterfly, a piercing, jelly etc.) From there they creat a 4 minute scene demonstrating this character.

    Thanks in advance!

    "a peanut butter sandwich"; "an iron barfly"; a melting iceberg". That kind of stuff?
