Wait...What? FAQ

Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters, and dialogue are made up in the moment.

For our purposes, improv is anytime you don’t have a script, whether that be in an interview, in a meeting, or on a first date.

Improv helps us overcome individual obstacles by encouraging spontaneity and free expression.

Of course! Here are some popular performance groups who do improv that you may have heard of:

  • Whose Line Is It Anyway?
  • The Second City
  • Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) Theatre
  • Middleditch and Schwartz on Netflix


You may have also heard of these people who started in improv:

  • Steve Carell
  • Tina Fey
  • Bill Murray
  • Amy Poehler
  • Will Ferrell


Note that in your workshop, participants participate in improv exercises modified for beginners with no experience, because the performers in the groups listed here are professional improvisers who have been training for years. 

You do NOT have to be funny!

In fact, common advice for performers of comedic improv is to NOT try to be funny, and to instead focus on the relationship between the two people in the scene. 

Workshops are typically 1-4 hours long. Depending on your needs, we may also have repeating sessions.

With longer workshops, we can go deeper into our subject matter and team building and we can make a larger impact through experiential learning. We have more time for more lessons and more activities.

Usually, clients start with a 2 hour workshop, although this depends largely on client needs.
