Additional notes: Taking risks in improv isn’t about making bold, big or crazy moves, it’s about trusting your ideas and yourself and not being afraid to suck or tank in front of an audience or your peers.
You don't need an idea to start a scene. All you need is a first move.
Space work. Space work. Space work. Never stop doing space work.
Always give a "Yes And" to your partner.
Don't be afraid to take risks.
Don't let your ego get in the way of becoming great.
