The Science of Improv with Ryan Stiles & Oona Cava

In the Season 1 finale, Spark Science interviews Comedian and founder of the Upfront Theater in Bellingham, WA, Ryan Stiles.  We discuss the difference between improv and stand up comedy, how one teaches comedy and the benefits of laughter.

We also bring in the Upfront Theater improv instructor who taught our very own Jordan Baker.  Oona Cava discusses the methods of improv in more detail and how one can use improv techniques to become a better university professor.
Enjoy our jokes and come back for new episodes in January 2016.
