What gif?

In life, we are taught to be polite. This is not a bad thing,
but it does often push us to skirt around issues for fear of hurting one another’s feelings.
In improv, we are taught to be honest. A sincere reaction,
whether positive or negative, to that honesty is essential to a great scene.

So WHAT IF we could be honest in life like we are on stage…?
