All I Need to Know in Life I Learned in Improv

Improv is like Kindergarten because:

You have to take turns when playing.
You are supposed to listen to the person in charge.
Sometimes you work with a partner or a large group.
We have snack.
We play dress up.
You are evaluated on your ability to play well with others.
We play with blocks.
We pay people to watch us.

Improv is not like Kindergarten because:

We swear.
We follow a blended pedagogy from Johnstone, Close, Spolin and No.
There’s no napping allowed.
There’s no Wake Up Fairy.
There’s lots of inappropriate sexual content.
We stay up late.
People pay to watch us.

I don't get snack. Does someone have snack?
