Ask an Improviser

"What is the most important improv lesson you ever learned?"

Performer Kathleen Armenti
Magnet Theater
"In improv, you can be good at any job and you can be an expert in any field. If you are labeled a profession you've never heard of, or if you encounter a reference you’re not familiar with, whatever you say about it is true in the world of the scene. In turn, if your scene partner says something “incorrect” about a reference that you have outside knowledge of, they’re right and you’re there to support them. If you get labeled a Thimblerigger, and you don’t know what a Thimblerigger is, remember you can decide to know exactly what a Thimblerigger is and be the best Thimblerigger of all time. On the other hand, if your scene partner is labeled a Thimblerigger and says that a Thimblerigger is something other than what you know a Thimblerigger to be, your scene partner is correct and a genius. Responding to what your scene partner says, so that you’re building the world together, is more important than all of the sweet Thimblerigger references you’ve got in your back pocket, NERD! "
