Improvisation changed our lives.
Learning to play like a child again has helped us listen, speak, write, and present more effectively. All while making us laugh our asses off.
In the 10 years since we began taking classes, the popularity of improv has exploded. Second City, iO, Annoyance and UCB have expanded like crazy, taking thousands of students each year. Alumni have started their own podcasts, web series, and even opened their own theatres in other cities. Like the famous New York collective, improv really is everywhere.
Because it’s such an immersive experience, there’s no substitute for a live teacher or coach. But since not everyone has access to world-class instructors, our goal is to share some of their wit and wisdom with a wider audience.
In addition to improv forms, exercises, and techniques, you’ll find improv-related videos, images and reviews, as well as insight and opinions from some of the top improvisers on the planet.
Thanks for dropping by. And if you’re not sure where to begin, just do like Kevin Whalen of Standards & Practices says: “Follow the fun.”
