Playing with your improv nemesis

Now for the darker side of improv.

  1. Realize what your partner is doing
  2. Don’t get spiteful
  3. Do whatever necessary to make the scene work
  4. Thank your partner, don’t teach them how to be ‘better’
  5. Move on

Your nemesis is often an extreme version of you.

Nemesis: Crazy/High

Nemesis: Crazy / Low

Nemesis: Logical / Low

Nemesis: Logical / High
