I was innocently hopping along my facebook newsfeed and came across this link:
…with the pulled comment “improv saved my life.”
I started watching and was excited to see one of my favorite teachers, Michael Delaney, narrating the video. Then I saw some of my favorite performers like Secunda, Scheer, and Miriam. And then, holy sh*t you guys, the old space where we had classes. Those orange awkward chairs we sat in, the props from old sketches and shows strewn about, the rickety floor with hidden cockroaches. More so, people I have had classes with. All my old memories flashing back and Michael Delaney talking about the art of improv and why we do it. I consider Michael Delaney to be my first acting teacher and you can see exactly why in this video.
Yeah, and I would say improv saved my life.
