"Okay, Tracy, when I say 'Standby' you're going to make a farting noise!"

Tonight, I went to my commercial acting class. One of the exercises we did was a group commercial audition scenario. It was for the game Scruples. There were six of us gathered around a card table playing the game. We had to create the illusion of a party atmosphere...lots of laughter. The scene had to start with a big burst of laughter. So when we were out in the hall rehearsing, I gave an off-the-cuff one-liner: "So she she called me into her office, and she farted!" (Insert group laughter here.) My teacher overheard us rehearsing, and thought it was funny. When we went back into the classroom to do our mock audition, we took about eight takes or so. Each one of the takes had to begin with a burst of group laughter. Before each and every take, the teacher said, "Okay, Tracy, when I say 'Standby', make a farting noise!"

Just another day in acting class!

Now if you can TRULY fart on cue, not just make a fake noise, you'll be famous. ;)
