C3? Offers, Reality, Game with Will Hines
Say yes, play it real, find a game -- these three things are the main ingredients of a great improv set, but they bump up against each other. Let's examine each component so we can learn how they work together. First an in-depth listening exercise where we treat every line as an offer that we must accept immediately. Then we move on and practice playing it real at all costs, injecting as much of our real selves as possible. Finally, we do an exercise on finding unusual things/game. Phew!
