Improv FTW

I found Heather and Miles after looking at some Upright Citizens Brigade videos and clearly they are an amazing improv team.

Rule 1 of improv is to agree with your partner and build off of their premise. AKA “Yes, and…” BUT, all rules are made to be broken.

I like the perfume sample scene above because it shows that once people reach a certain level, they can work outside the rules.

Even though I love Portlandia and SNL and Key and Peele, they aren’t improv shows.  If something great happens during filming, they might keep or add it, but everything is scripted to start.  So, I guess I will just keep watching clips of random improv teams and Whose Line is it Anyway on youtube:
