I’m Michael Bradt for The Bit Theater. Five seconds of silence onstage can feel like a lifetime. But a mistake that is easy to make is to feel obligated to immediately respond to a scene partner’s offer with whatever comes to mind. It's better to take a second to think about your response than it is to blurt out anything just to fill space. If you find yourself doing the latter too often, try discarding the first line you think of and say the second line instead. Not only will it slow you down, but you'll be surprised how often your second line is better than your first. That’s your improv tip for the day. Stay safe, stay healthy, love each other, and I will see you next time.
