    Mick cuts through the nonsense that has somehow started cluttering up improv and comedy, and re presents the art from of improv in as pure a manner as possible Both his books are the standard, aimed at artists trying to become better and free artists This, nor his other books, is a formula to follow that will ensure you give the audience the jokey scene they see coming before you even plan it out Instead of that, he s teaching you to improvise Once you see it for what it is, you ll accept no substitutes I ve been doing long form improv now for over 10 years, not as long as some but long enough to know I ve studied with a very wide range of teachers coming from ever major improv school and plenty of minor ones , in a wide range of styles Mick and the Annoyance style stands alone and blends well with other styles.

    Mick Napier has been there done that and speaks the uncomfortable truth when it comes to long form improvisation.

  11. Jeff Quintana Jeff Quintana says:

    Long form improvisation has been waiting for this book to call out all the bull that is going on in the industry The knowledge in this book will make your shows tighter and funnier Mick is the best in the biz You could drop this book in the middle of a terrible improv show and if the actors were to read it and put its lessons into practice, they would be given a standing ovation by the end.
