We go through life interacting with dozens of people each day without a prepared script. From “What are you hungry for tonight?” to “Give us a quick update on the project status,” you’re improvising answers and responses all the time. Practicing this skill can help you feel more confident in any situation.
Jessie Shternshus has been studying and practicing improv since she was 11 years old; she’s a professional actor and performs regularly at the Comedy Zone. But she insists that you don’t have to be a professional actor or comedian to use the skill; you already use it every day in conversation.
