Improv is dangerous – Lateral Lessons Ep 06

As a speaker, it's important that we take risks in our craft. We must push ourselves and try things that we've never tried before.

Here's another variation on Character Intro you can try:


  • Take the Risk

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Improv is risky. Excellence is risky. Life is risky.

  • Welcome the fails

    In improv there's no script, no net. Some nights you nail it. Some nights you don't. And that's okay. Lessons are always learned as a result.

  • Embrace the danger

    Danger is part of the game. Speaking shouldn't feel comfortable. Authentic yes. Vulnerable definitely. Not comfortable.

"We have to be willing to take risks. As an improv performer, I am taking a risk every single time I go up there. It never gets easier. It's the same for speakers. The more we risk the more we grow."Kymberlee Weil
