Truth in comedy the manual of improvisation

This improv manual introduced the concepts of the "Harold"--The improvisational tool that helped Saturday Night Live's Mike Myers, Chris Farley, George Wendt, and many others on the road to TV and film stardom. The concepts are described fully in this theatre book that has become the bible for wannabe improvisers. The "Harold" is an improv form involving six or seven players. It consists of many things: scenes, songs, games, and monlogues--the most important of which is the two-scene beginning. A strong opening develops the point of view for "The Group Mind" to follow, often with three different storylines. It tells how to create a non-linear entertainment that remembers everything and wasts nothing--the key to successful improvising.
