I have officially inducted myself into the improv geek hall of fame. At a marvelous coffee shop in Burlington on Main Street, I scrawled on the bathroom wall…
When in doubt, “Yes, and…” that shit.
I am aware people are going to read that and think Del Close said that in his life but I only realized that later in my hotel room. I initially wrote only the sentence. Had more coffee. Thought people wouldn’t understand it or even know where to look for an explanation. Then wrote Del Close underneath so people would at least have a reference point, that would explain the idea of being in a scene, or in life and being in doubt and not only going along with it but adding to it. Point is I geeked out and am excited about my improv class beginning in two days and the name of the coffee shop is Muddy Waters.
