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 Cameron’s case, it also helped him overcome crippling anxiety. In fact, he now teaches improv to help others do the same. (Click to read his story or sign up for classes.)

In the last 10 years, improv has exploded in popularity. Second City, Annoyance, iO and UCBT have expanded like crazy, taking thousands of students each semester. Alumni have started their own podcasts, web series, and even opened their own theatres. Like the famous New York collective, improv really is everywhere.

Because it’s such an immersive experience, there’s no substitute for a real live teacher or coach. But since not everyone has access to world-class instructors, we started this blog to share some of that wit and wisdom with a wider audience.

In addition to improv forms, exercises and techniques, you’ll find videos, interviews and reviews, as well as insight and guest posts from some of the top improvisers on the planet.

If you’re not sure where to begin, just do like Kevin Whalen of Standards & Practices, and “Follow the fun.”
