Online improv is better than a wet sock.
Flat Improv - Online improv classes, jams, livestreams
Dear really cool improv friends,

We are well into February. I can't believe it's almost time to start germinating the tomatoes! Anyway let's talk about improv instead. 

I have some new improv resources for you this week. A written article about voice of reason, another podcast episode, and another couple show videos too.

Jams and classes too! Do you want to take part on a team doing a brand new form using to deliver it online in a creative new way? Then keep reading! (peak foreshadowing)

Podcasts & Articles

Another podcast episode of the Neurodiversity & Improv project, and a written version of episode 9 about voice of reason are up on Substack.

I will be switching to alternating between voice and text most likely, since there seems to be some interest in the text versions. I guess it's helpful? I am not sure so if you have feedback let me know!

Also thank you so much for the pledge made - much appreciated!

Details: Noticing the unusual at the top of an improv scene can be hard. Learn when and how to do it, especially if you're unusual too. And for everyone: this is how to communicate better with scene partners.
