Improv Comedy Resources

The Improv Page, not to be confused with The New Improv Page. You may also find important improv comedy information at The Improv Encyclopedia, The Learn Improv Page, Chicago's Improv Resource Center or perhaps even The Spolin Center. There is much more happening in the world of improv comedy than the increasingly unsatisfying Whose Line is it Anyway?

just remember: never have your characters "go to the store." I know that characters need supplies, but seriously.

What is believed to be Part of a Complete Breakfast's last show is tonight. I'll be there, but I've also been to almost all of them.

I would have linked YesAnd.com (primarily a message board with some decent articles), Improvland and Improv Review, but those are all places where I have written or have been written about. However, they are also some decent improv resources, so here they are!

The Hot Chicks room was installed in the 80s. And while not all the chicks are that hot anymore, they are, in fact, replaceable.

Thank you. Thank you. In times like these America needs to remember its traditions.

Thank you fo posting these Joey Michaels.

I attended a course on free improv last winter and it had a huge impact on me. I study music and it was an obligatory course.

I had to rethink everything on how I performed, played, practiced and the ways that I communicated with people...

The links went to straight to my bookmarks... I'll dig down deeper when I get sober... monday, tuesday...
