Need your ideas – good places for pranks and flashmobs?

One of the big challenges as we’ve tried to get ImprovAZ up and rolling, and work with the AZ Flashmob group, is finding good places to do missions. It’s more difficult than you might think.

If something is on private property, you have to be really careful that you don’t get in trouble for trespassing. Some security personnel have senses of humor, and others do not. You can try contacting the property owner for permission, but they often want a fee to “use” their facility, or get very suspicious of anything that might disrupt their business. Besides, once you have to start getting approval letters, a whole lot of the “improv” part of the equation has started to disappear.

The best places are public property. Improv Everywhere loves to use public terminals (subways, train terminals), parks, and community areas. That’s a bit more challenging in Arizona because so many public facilities are outside. So even the great parks we have are tough to use in the height of summer.

We want to build a list of places we can match up with some of the great ideas we’ve been getting. It’s been challenging for us, so I figured let’s ask for suggestions! Spread the word around and see what we can come up with.  We’ll take any idea, but ideally we want public locations (or if private, explain why it would still be a good place). Also, think about all over the Valley. ASU and Tempe have great locations, but we want to really start spreading things around.

And if you know any friends, family, or colleagues who might have ideas – ask them. Please leave your ideas in the comments below, or if you need to be confidential you can email us at
