Welcome to a brand new feature which we are going to feature ever so often as part of Improv Corner. Ever so often. we are going to talk to improv acts about some of their favourite things about the comedy form. Today we speak to Molly Jennings of the brand new theatre company In Stitches that was formed out of graduates of Rose Bruford. Today I find out all about parts of improv that are better then the rest in a game I like to call Playing The Favourite.
