Inspiring!

I’m still finding my footing as an improviser & having come to it later in life I feel really grateful for these wonderful, informative interviews. There’s so much here that I can take back to practices & performances. Thanks so much for your generosity in sharing this info.

Gems in every episode!

Im learning my way through improv, and I need all the help I can get. Ive listened to loads of podcasts, and Im really enjoying Carla's 'Improv Yak' podcast. Its casual, yet covers a lot of ground. I used to cherry pick episodes based on each 'theme' but Im realizing that there great little take-away nuggets in each one. So far my faves are 'Ownership - Jason Shots', 'The Why - Colleen Doyle' and 'Playing with Silence - Ithamar Enriquez'. Thanks Carla!

Great interviewers with wonderful improvisers!

There's lots to learn by listening to this podcast. As an LA improviser, I've loved hearing about the teams I need to check out and learning more about the journeys of the improvisers I admire. I enjoy hearing perspectives about and from the different schools. Carla's wit, charm, and charisma shine throughout.
