Why are you excited about coming to NZIF?
Oooo, to play with friends and new friends, to make new friends and see old friends, to play and see friends and audiences, to make audiences new friends, to be an audience to my friends, and because improv's the best.
What do you get out of festivals like NZIF (or NZIF specifically)?
I get a renewed sense of the possibilities of improv. I'm always hopeful that there're more nooks and crannies to improv yet to be explored and new things I can find out about my colleagues and myself through improv. Plus, FUN!
Best thing about improv is:
When you don't even know what you just did or what you just saw, but you know it was amazing.
