With improv, it's a combination
of listening and not trying to be funny.

Tina Fey has said, “To me YES, AND
means don’t be afraid to contribute.
It’s your responsibility to contribute.
Always make sure you’re adding
something to the discussion.
Your initiations are worthwhile.”

I think it could be even simpler.
The REAL first rule of improv is
“Be Courageous” Not “Don’t Be Afraid”

wise words . stephen colbert

When he was still a college student, comedian Stephen Colbert began working with an improvisational theater in Chicago. “That really opened me up in ways I hadn’t expected,” he tells Bain. “You must be O.K. with bombing. You have to love it.” Colbert adds, “Improvisation is a great educator when it comes to failing. There’s no way you are going to get it right every time.”

Improv as an actor makes you present
in the moment. You listen, you're attentive.
You're not acting so much as reacting,
which is what you're doing in life all the time.

— Nathan Fillion


We cannot direct the wind,
but we can adjust the sails.

— Dolly Parton
