Improvisation is one of the best tools an actor can have in their arsenal. It is used in so many different forms and mediums including commercial auditions, sitcoms, reality hosting, and on-set explorations. The study and performance of improv is an excellent way of sharpening acting skills and a great method to develop writing techniques. Actors praise improv for helping at auditions, for making them stretch, for allowing them to find new types of roles to play and for providing a form of acting that, once mastered, requires little or no rehearsal time.
