|Julie Andrews musters her confidence|
The objective is to sell your ideas to your fellow actors and to the audience. Make them appealing. Make us all want to buy in!
I posed the question in the workshop - If you sell your ideas with more confidence, will it make for better improv?
The answer? Yes it did.
By purposefully adding confidence, we remembered introductions, laughed more, and created great scenes. Confidence is an amazing ingredient in an improv show and in life.

I remember learning to Sell It for an entire show.
Although Julie Andrews has a bigger hat than me.
Realize that there is a powerful connection between what you say and how you say it.
Focus on the ability to make the audience believe you by selling your ideas, characters and choices.
And remember... if you're on stage, someone in the audience is watching you. Sit up and Sell It!
