Mark Sutton is quotable:

“Improvisers get in trouble when they project results based on their choices.”

“All scenes are about one thing: how are these two people affecting each other?”

“We don’t need to let the cat out of the bag in the first three lines.”

“If the environment is not helping you tell the story, you don’t need it.”

“Drinking a beverage in an improv scene is the most shaded window into what’s going on. … In no way does it enhance their character, point of view … because it’s not about drinking a beverage but HOW they drink the beverage.”

“The three most important things in a scene according to me is to first know who you are, second to know what the scene is about, and given these first two, then simply be who you are as much as you can.”

“Here are two universal ways to get better at improv: talk less to listen more; do lots of things other than improv.”

  1. Love this post of quotables. Your “who … what” reminded me of a Rich Talarico workshop at Camp Improv Utopia (2013). He proposed the “who … where” and the what, why, etc. would emerge, as long as you had your “who” point of view, etc.
