CHEAT SHEET

Life Is Improv

Dont try to have scripted conversations because it usually does not work well.
Instead improvise your interactions using the tools youve learned in this program.

Yes, And is an improv tool that helps condition the players to agree with whatever
has been said and add to the narration. This is also a great tool/concept to use when a
girl gives an objection or does something that throws you off your game.

Improv Exercises

Talk About Anything


Best to use flashcards containing random words on one side. You can also just spot a
random object nearby and then start talking about it. Keep talking for a designated
period of time before switching to a new word/topic. I recommend 20 seconds per
word/topic. Can do this exercise in 3 stages: Logical, Emotional, Sexual.
*Watch the module for a full demonstration and guided practice.

One World At A Time Story


2-3 people are required to play. Players must tell a story with each person only
contributing one word at a time.
Example:
A: Joe
B: Was
C: A
A: Man

1
B: Who
C: Was
A: Afraid
B: Of
C: Cats

Emotional Roulette
Needs at least two people and someone to be the moderator. Two players start a
conversation about anything they want. Then every 1-2 minutes, the moderator shouts
out a random emotion and the players must continue their conversation in the tone of
that emotion. Great exercise to practice emotional expression and being more fun.

Last Word Response


This game can be done with two or more players. The only rule to the game is to
respond to someone using the last word they used. You can even try playing it alone
continuing your own sentences with the last word of your.
Example:
A: I have to go to the store today.
B: Today I will make it home on time.
A: Time and time again I feel lazy.
B: Lazy is just an excuse.
A: Excuse me? Thats not right.

Gibberish Game
Requires 4 players. Two people will speak to each other in gibberish language while
the other two people translate what is being said. Take turns between the gibberish
speakers saying something crazy and weird (alien words, mouth sounds, grunts, etc.),
and letting the translators interpret it any way they want. For the gibberish speakers,
this exercise is a great way to work on your body language and tonality and being
more expressive in your communication. And for the translators, this is a great
opportunity to read those nonverbal signals and give meaning to them, as well as
come up with interesting dialog on the spot.

You know what else is _____

2
When your friend says an adjective simply say, You know what else is [adjective]?
And then answer your own question with a witty response. You can tell your friends
about this improv exercise or just start doing it without them unknowingly.
Example:
Friend: This burger is huge
You: You know what else is big? Donald Trumps hair

Friend: This portion is really small


You: You know what else is small? Atoms and electrons

Friend: This egg is really hard.


You: You know what else is hard? Glaciers in Antartica
