Clear, helpful advice and descriptions of theater improvisation games, then improv exercises, al written in a fun, engagement way. Any theatre classroom should use this book as reference (or any improve group), both to make sure they’re not missing any great games/exercises, plus it exemplifies the principles of improv. A+!

This is a great little book for newbies to the improv comedy world. It is easy to use and the games are fun. It gives great ideas on how to use them and is helpful for anyone wanting to take up improv or teach a beginner class.

I expected more... a bit shallow...

Great, thorough descriptions of lots of great group warm-ups and scene exercises. It's not a vast new continent of never-before-seen improv, but it's the clearest map I've ever seen of the very tricky terrain of group dynamics, which can make or break a performance group (or any group, for that matter). Peter Gwinn writes in a fun and playful conversational tone and the accompanying retro-tastic photos of improvisers at play are, frankly, adorable. I have met folks who trained with Gwinn, and now I join them in their wish to hug him for this contribution to the craft. Gracias!

Gwinn has been performing and teaching at Chicago's Improv Olympic for nearly a decade, so he knows his stuff. That being said, as articulate as this book is, it should serve as a supplement, not a substitute, for first-hand experience or training in long- or short-form comedy improvisation.
This book is great for teaching the support and trust actors need to perform any form of theatre...invigorating games with levels of difficulty so they can be used for most any group. I've used it for aged 7 to 18 but it is great for adults as well, especially the more challenging games. Bravo!
