Yes and / Yes but

One of the main principles of improvised comedy is saying ‘Yes and’ instead of ‘Yes but’ or ‘No’. It’s also a great way to create a culture shift, boost positivity, brainstorm ideas, start a project, or run a networking activity.

In the video, you’ll notice I’ve used the Mexican shush as a way to stop the group talking.

Of course, you can adapt the opening lines to anything you wish.
