Tina Fey’s Rules of Improv

20 07 2011

Rule # 1: Agree
[T]he Rule of Agreement reminds you to “respect what your partner has created” and to at least start from an open-minded place. Start with a YES and see where it takes you.
Rule #2: Yes, and…
YES, AND means don’t be afraid to contribute. It’s your responsibility to contribute. Always make sure you’re adding something to the discussion. Your initiations are worthwhile.
Rule #3: Make statements
Whatever the problem, be part of the solution. Don’t just sit around raising questions and pointing out obstacles.
Rule #4: There are no mistakes
In improv, there are no mistakes, only beautiful happy accidents.
