Inspiration Station!

I wanted to throw some inspiration out to you today. Often times we do this art for free, we do it because we love it. We succeed and we fail, we succeed and then fail, then we succeed and fail again. We torture ourselves for the love of something we love to do. We’ve spend many hours training, spend money to travel to festivals  and sacrifice so much. Why? Because that’s the kind of people we are. We are improvisors. Today this inspiration is for you.

Some great improv quotes to inspire you today…Go out there and be fearless today and everyday! Conquer the world and open yourself up to it and it will do amazing things for you:

Jump and the net will appear – Rich Talarico 

Your brain is a liar and an asshole – David Razowsky

Being an improvisor is being your best self onstage – Craig Cackowski

Know that it’s a really good thing that it’ll take awhile to get halfway decent at it. That you can’t rush it and don’t try to rush it. You’ll come along at the page you’re supposed to come along at. Don’t think of it as math. It’s music. It’s not a problem to be solved. It’s a song to be listened to. – TJ Jagadowski

You can’t surprise the audience if you cannot surprise yourself. They have a better seat than you. – Jill Bernard

Great improvisors never look worried onstage. It’s not that they became great and stopped worrying, they stopped worrying and then became great. – Miles Stroth

Fail, then figure out what to do on the way down – Del Close

Integrity is living up to what you declare, in an improv scene and in life. declare what you honestly want, and live that vision fearlessly. – Mick Napier
