Last night was, what may have been, my return to improv. I hosted an earlier show and that went extremely well. My own show, however, was not as successful.
Hindsight, as they say, is 20/20 and so looking back on things I realise what I mostly did wrong. I have previously posted on the rules of improv. Well, I forgot one of them: play and have fun. I have been so wrapped up in my own misery that I simply did not remember to relax and enjoy being silly.
It is also clear that I have not been applying this rule to life as well. I have got to learn to play the game in life and not take things so goddamn serous.
I am doing another show in a few weeks and will, hopefully, remember to abandon the seriousness and just be in the moment.
