Improv Wins – Fear is the Mind Killer


You may be asking, “How the hell do I supposed to stay relaxed when I’m on stage with no script and so few things are in my control?”


This is where we need mantras and litanies against fear. We need constant reminders of some truths about fear, about improv and especially about ourselves.

This is improv.
This moment in this space with these people will only happen once.
I am a badass co-creating imaginary universes with other badasses.
I don’t have to do anything I don’t want to do.
I can do whatever I want.
I love this.
This is improv.
