Once upon a time, there were some adults adulting – working, pushing buttons, scrolling their lives away. Suddenly, one of them said, “Hey! Let’s play!” And so they made stuff up and they played. “Yes, And… For The Love of Improv, let’s keep playing together, forever!” they declared and skipped, hopped and summersaulted into the sunset. For The Love of Improv is a podcast dedicated to adults who are interested in discovering the freedom of play – making stuff up, talking in a silly voice, moving your elbow weird, dancing like a monkey, laughing, pretending.
