Improv Corner – Highlights From 2022 – INTERVIEW with Avocado Improv

To celebrate the end of the year, I thought it would be interesting to spend the end of the year looking at back at some of the articles that I have written. One of my favourite topics this year is talking about improv in the media so over the next month we will looking at some of the highlights in this topic. From September, I launched a new feature where we interview improv acts about their favourite things.
