How did improv change your life?

I can trace almost every great personal accomplishment, friendship, and acting career opportunity back to improv. Improv has given me the confidence to adapt to and make the best of whatever life throws my way. Improv allows the old control freak in me the ability to be, in any given scene, the writer, director, and star yet also the freedom to let go of all control and just go wherever the scene and my trusted scene partners take me. Improv has changed my life for the better and I couldn’t imagine my life without it.
