Improv. Creating stuff in the moment, often in a team. Some people do it for laughs. You don’t have to, it doesn’t have to be funny. It is fun though. It is enormous fun. And it is sociable.
Improv works the imagination. Improv takes the problem solving, solution finding, consensus finding bits of your brain for a light jog and a bit of a workout, and most people report feeling energised and more creative after a session; more able to empathise and to come up with ideas.

It is a laugh. It is a brilliant, energising, engaging, liberating, laugh.
