This past weekend a friend asked me what I wanted to do with improv.

What.  Do.  I.  Want.

ONE. Create the Unimaginable

Improv feels like having a word right on the tip of your tongue.  You know what it can achieve but you just can’t place it quite yet.

I want to discover what Improv is.

The Obstacle.  I have no idea where to even start.

Current Course.  Experiment!  Experiment!  Experiment!

TWO. Queen of Improv Knowledge

I want to know everything there is to know about improv.  History, style, terms, current news, etc.

The Obstacle.  There’s a lot to learn.

Current Course.  Read at least one article a day.


This one is tough because it feels so vain and stupid….but if I was being honest…..

THREE.  Be Known.

Ugh, I know.  I shouldn’t want this, but I do.  I want to have clout and influence in the improv world.

I think it’s because I want to prove to myself that I can do this.  I want others to know I have skill without having to prove myself each time I step into the ring.

Even if I lose the match that night, I just want to come away feeling like people will still respect my craft.

The Obstacle.  Myself and Marketing Myself

Current Course.  Network and Create Amazing Work

What are your top reasons for improvising?
