Blog: Improv therapy

There are things you don’t say and do in real life, but you can say and do on stage. I believe doing so is a therapeutic outlet for those parts of us that we hold inside.

On stage, you can say:

“I learned the passcode to your cell phone.”

“I like being naked with you.”

“Fuck it, I’m gonna do it, to hell with the consequences.”

And you can:

Take off your wedding ring.

Tell off your boss and make a scene about it.

Be the person who you think you want to be.

It’s okay. It’s fun. It’s what the audience wants to see. And it’s therapeutic.
