    Here are a few common improv guidelines to get you thinking:

    1. Yes AND…

    If someone tells you that you are a "purple donkey from the planet Fultron," accept it and hit all-fours. Add to it. Don’t deny anything a partner says.

    2. Don’t Try to be Funny

    Usually, it is the most mundane, random detail that gets the biggest laugh. Don’t force funny or it will show. In other words, there’s no pressure!

    3. Make Your Partners Look Good

    It’s not about you. Improv is about making the people around you look like comedic geniuses. In other words, there’s no pressure!

    4. Commit

    Whether you make a great choice or not, commit whole-heartedly during a scene. It’s just a choice. You really can’t mess up. In other words…

    Speaking of committing: To help ensure everyone gets a chance to participate, we will limit each meeting to the first 12 people to sign up. Please, please, please commit to attending when you register so that someone doesn’t miss the chance to participate.
