The "Rules" of Improv at a Glance
1. No Blocking.
Say “Yes! And…”
Say the first thing that comes into your head – don’t censor yourself.
Avoid asking questions.
2. Make your partner look good.
First line of dialogue tells us who are.
Give them something to work with.
3. Don’t try to make the scene funny.
You cannot “bend” an actor or a scene to make them do what you want them to do.
Stick to the character you’ve created; stick to the story, and stay in the reality of the scene.
4. Use your location.
When running out of ideas, use/do something that is relevant to where the scene is taking place.
