Improving Your Improv: Applying Comedy Principles To Daily Life

Feb 27, 2019

Improvisational comedy is about making it up as you go along, but the ideas of improv are increasingly finding their way to workplaces and other groups to increase teamwork, foster collaboration and spark new ideas. We're looking at improv in Vermont and how its ideas apply at work and in daily life.

Julia DiFerdinando, creative director with the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington, joins Vermont Edition to share the basics of improv and how those ideas apply beyond comedy for ways to build trust within groups and improve cooperation.

And Mark Stein with Tiger Monkey Dragon Performing Arts talks about teaching improv to kids and the benefits he sees in their learning and relationships.
