Quiz - How Much Do You Know About Improv Comedy?
Improv Comedy Is Often Enjoyed, But Sometimes Misunderstood
Improvisational comedy, or improv, is an exciting art form in which a group of actors work together to create scenes, stories and realities that have never existed before. Many people think, "Oh, I could never do that," but actually you do it every day! Every utterance and interaction you have is new and you are, in fact, creating it as you go along, just like the improv actors do. The main difference is that the actors have had more training. Think you know what improv's all about? Take this quiz!
