Synopsis

Prominent alumni (Mike Nichols, Joan Rivers, Robert Klein, among others) bring theatrical improvisation to life, with all the vitality, the power and the exuberance - the satire and spontaneity - that they made famous and that launched their careers. "An important book about the most important American theatrical endeavor since the Group Theatre. Plus, it's fun to read". -David Mamet
