This sequel to the best-selling improv book Truth in Comdey is designed to help improv performers move up to the more advanced levels of improvisation. Accompanying this theatre book is a DVD featuring performers in action demonstrating the instructions and ideas covered in the book. The DVD includes performances by four popular improv groups: Upright Citizens Brigade, Beer Shark Mice, Armando Diaz Theatrical Experience, The Reckoning, and assorted short clips with Peter Hulne. Also on the DVD are interviews with many celebrity improv artists including: Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler, Stephnie Weir, Tim Meadows, Andy Dick, and Adam McKay. This book of 19 chapters is divided into 3 parts: 1. i.O. Art by Committee Forms deals with the New Harold, Tag Outs and Monologs. 2.
