Improv Resolutions


2014, everybody!

New year, new you, new resolutions.

Keeping up with that theme, I’ve been thinking about what my improv resolutions would be. 


-Enter the stage with a character, an emotion, a “something” to contribute to the scene.

-Embrace offers.

-Appreciate, don’t hate.




-Aid and abet.

-Physical contact to draw focus to the scene.

-Make every scene about the people, not about the invisible thing no one can actually see.

-Transform emotions from those “other” invisible things into something the audience can truly see.

-Receive at least one standing ovation.

-Shift sour grapes into sweet opportunities.

-Make the improv better through making myself better mentally, physically, and emotionally.

Not many resolutions, sure. But necessary ones.

Have any to steal or add? Leave them in the comments.

    I hadn’t learned “physical contact to draw focus” yet— I like that, makes sense, Ima try it.

    Can I submit a resolution of “just stick with it,” or is that setting the bar too low?
