Keegan Peel: The Invisible arts of Improv

Improv is a creative brand of acting and takes copious amounts of talent, with even more practice.

Keegan Michael Key has made a career and name through exercising his improvisational skills in TV shows and movies such as Whose Line Is It Anyway, MADtv and Tomorrowland.

In this interview on The Off Camera Show, Keegan Key lays down the groundwork for what the act of improv is, and why it’s so fun for both the audience and the actors.

He begins this artful analysis explaining most people believe improv to be a complicated form of thinking fast and thinking forward, when in reality it’s far more comparable to walking backwards, and listening to the last detail your acting partner spoke into the scene.

Great improv is immensely entertaining and equally difficult, but with the explanations and examples Keegan Key gives, the secrets of improvisation begin to seem clearer for any aspiring actors.
