Summary
  • 'The Improv Handbook' is a great new guide that covers the history of improvisation and includes chapters on spontaneity and the fundamentals of storytelling
  • "Beginning with a comprehensive history of improvisational theatre, The Improv Handbook looks at modern theories and practices of improvisation on a global scale. With that ground covered, the real heart of this book is all about how to improvise. Tom and Deborah take a close look at issues of spontaneity, the fundamentals of storytelling, working as a team, upping the ante, and character development. They also include sections on how to improvise in front of an audience and how to make money out of improvisation. The Improv Handbook concludes with a series of interviews with key figures from around the world, including Keith Johnstone, Charna Halpern, and Dan O'Connor."--BOOK JACKET
