Improv Is Acting

 
 

ABOUT

dave-to-right.jpg

From my 10 revues at Chicago's Second City performing with the likes of Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Amy Sedaris, and Rachel Dratch, to the 10 years I spent as Artistic Director of The Second City Hollywood, to the countless worldwide workshops and performances I've engaged in, to my TEDx Talk, “Life: The Product is the Process,” I've developed a simple approach to improvising: Your present awareness is the only thing you need to create compelling, smart, truthful, and surprising scenes. Period. No games, no preconceived premises, no ideas, no ego. All that matters is now. The actor’s level of improvisation experience doesn’t matter, for all you'll need to bring to my workshop is your present presence. All you’ll leave with is your joy and excitement and confidence. And after all, what more do you need?
