Improv Resources

Hey crew,

For those of us running jams, organising shows and thinking about developmental stuff, here’s a bunch of stuff I’ve either found or stolen. I think it would be cool to keep adding to this, so if you find anything useful or happen to make a list of exercises or tongue-twisters, email them in and I’ll upload them for everyone. We can also make additions using the comments at the bottom. Awesome.

Games Lists
