Better Beginnings

You should be able to initiate with almost anything and still have a successful scene. Let's practice different common ways of starting (meaning: in the middle of a conversation, with the environment, an opinion inspired by the suggestion, "desperation" starts with almost no info) and be ready to play the other side of them. 

Pre-requisite: Completion of Improv 401

He's co-written, starred in and directed many sketch shows. He makes short videos and dabbles in stand-up like an arrogant swaggering dilettante.
