Years ago (probably 2007?), I recorded a conversation among some of Chicago’s major improv leaders. Kick back and listen to Charna Halpern, Jimmy Carrane, Matt Elwell, Susan Messing and Mick Napier discuss the state of the art.
Be sure to listen to the responses to the question at 10:00 – “If you could say anything to a beginning improviser, what would it be?”
Also, enjoy Mick’s candid, invaluable advice at 32:28.
Funny that nothing’s really changed in six years…
