Name: Roy Janik
Location: Austin, Texas, USA

Improv style: playful, committed narrative with heart
Additional notes: Since we chatted, I’ve taught a class that forced me to distill my thoughts on the qualities of the perfect improviser even further. My current working premise is that an improviser should be bold, calm, and curious. Is that what I said in the podcast? I hope so.
Have a playful & adventurous spirit
Be curious & play curious characters
Follow your feet.
Be generous to your scene partners.
