"The first rule of improvisation is agree. Always agree and say yes. When you're improvising a scene, this means that you're always required to agree with whatever your partner has created . . . Now obviously, in real life you're not always going to agree with everything that another person says. I mean, that would be ridiculous. But the thing about the rule of agreement, I think, is that it teaches you the second part of it, which is to respect what your partner has created . . . I think that leads you to a great, open-minded starting place. To start with a yes in all your interactions and then see where that takes you."
