This site is a collection of improv games, exercises, and notes I’ve assembled over the past thirty years or so.

The emphasis is on games rather than long form structures because that’s how I was first taught improv, and it’s the approach I know best.

Performance Games

This is a list of improv performance games – that is, games you can use on stage, in front of a paying audience. They can also be used in a workshop. They range from games with a strong gimmick and tight structure, to games that can be a loose framework for all kinds of different scenes.

Workshop Games

These are games best suited to an improv workshop or class. They give training in improv principles, but are not typically the sort of thing you’d perform for an audience. (Coming soon)
