What is Improv Comedy?
Good question, and there are many answers. One explanation is: Improv Comedy is the Art of creating something out of nothing with everything in between. Typically an ensemble takes suggestions from an audience. Using the skills of Listening, Agreement, Discovery, and Appreciation the players create comedic characters, scenes, games, songs, and themes for the audience to enjoy.
What is Improv Trail?

We are devoted to the live arts and empowering an awareness of where and when others can discover the intangible rewards of Live Theater.

Who are the people in the photos?
The first one is of my former mentor, the late great Jason Chin. If you were lucky enough to know him, you knew how much he loved improv and community. He was committed to one of the greatest Theaters and Training Centers for Improv, iO Chicago . The Second is of the Guru himself, Del Close who along with Charna Halpern empowered Improv and The Harold as an popular Art form in Chicago and beyond. Everyone in North America knows his image. The third is of the great Viola Spolin whose teaching helped revitalize improv comedy in the zeitgeist of modern arts and whose son, Paul Sills, went on to be a founding member of The Second City. Photos are from Wikipedia, violaspolin.org, and The Maydays.
There will be so many other icons, theater, and training centers to share including Comedy Sportz, UCB, The Actors Gang, The Playground, The Annoyance, CIC Comedy, The Improv Shop, Improvised Shakespeare Companyhopefully Keith Johnstone’s Theater Sports, and improv from across the world such as OS Improvaveis in Lisbon, The Courtyard in Dubai, Boom Chicago in Amsterdam, London’s The Nursery & Hoopla, Brighton’s May Days, even info on how improv can help your business like with Bob Kulhan's Business Improv, DaveAndCo and many many others....
