On His Creative Process
"I write a lot, and perform often. Sometimes I'm using Loosies to relax after work. Sometimes it's helping my creative process. It depends on strain, but it's a great partner and works as advertised."
I started my career in improv in New Jersey. My work has expanded in scope but those improv principles always apply. You have to be open and ready for anything.
The principle rool of performance improv is "Yes And". If a scene partner offers you a line, you respond in the affirmative - and add to the dialouge. If someone tells you that your car has a flat tire, let them know how you got it. It's a spontaneous act of art.
We also say Follow the Fear. If it scares you, you'll want to explore it. Isn't that why we're all here?
