ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Aerodynamics of Yes
Good improv can seem magical, but let’s not make it more mystical than it is. Stop praying to the improv Gods and take responsibilty for what you can control. Sweat the technique, be empowered by it, understand the science and why it works. Then trust in it, play confidently, and be excellent to each other.

Christian Capozzoli is one of the finest improv teachers I’ve worked with. His work with matching energies was a revelation, and his ability to explain his concepts clearly AND present exercises that get them into your body is exceptional. This is some of the easiest and most releasing improv I’ve ever done. And it’s of enormous benefit to improvisers and actors alike. I’m already incorporating his work in my improvisation classes for college theatre majors.Dan Diggles
