Improv comedy has a lot of skills that can help you in your career and even in your personal life. It can teach and emphasize listening, supporting your teammates’ ideas, being comfortable with the uncomfortable and thinking on your feet.

UCB teaches classes for people interested in becoming an improv performer as well as corporate workshops, which can be great team building exercises. If you’re interested in doing it yourself, check them out here.
