For the last 3 years, I’ve worked as a freelance improv coach. I meet with each team or practice group for a couple hours every week to give them feedback on their performances and equip them with strategies to play the way they want to play. This means, I spend a lot of time talking shop with improvisors of every style and level of experience. For money. Jealous? You should be. It’s amazing.
Every team and player is snowflake-level-unique, but some topics, no matter how small or large, always find their way into the rehearsal rooms. I have, by no means, seen or done it all. But I’ve seen and done a fair share in the last 5 years and I’m more than happy to share. Ask me anything you’d like about improv. Whether it’s about improv history, technique, whatever. You overheard a bit of lore in a lobby somewhere and you want to know the full story? Stuck in a rut of initiating absolutely crazy town third beats? Not sure if it’s ever acceptable to improvise in flip flops? Ask away. If I can’t answer you, I’ll ask someone who can. And I’ll post it all right here.
