About the Book:

When does someone who possesses a great deal of knowledge become a genius? How do you make the leap from intelligence to inspiration? It happens in a flash, in an instant of insight! It may take years of observation and study to reach the moment but the leap is Genius Now!

Alan Marriott, a teacher of improvisation, explains how the astonishing skills of performers on shows such as Who's Line is it Anyway? – creating ideas, characters, stories and even spontaneous songs – can be learned, and how they can be relevant not only to performers, but to people from all walks of life. A list of Alan's former students reads like a who's who of British comedy and includes Eddie Izzard, Alan Davies, Jake Arnott, Stella Duffy, Gordon Kennedy, Neil Ashdown, Fay Ripley, Ben Keaton, Dylan Emory and many more...
