This is an extreme listening exercise. The two players run around yelling “banana banana” as fast as they can. It is rumoured that this effort may help clear the mind and prevent players from “planning ahead.” When the leader calls stop the two players are expected to speak and the same time. They literally talk over each other. While talking over is a habit to be avoided in improv comedy it is encouraged in this exercise. The two players will simultaneously yell out nouns at each other.
