Avish Parashar says he has found that improv comedy skills have really helped him with his scripted employed work. “So it’s not just about improvising,” he says, “but all the tools really come together to help speaking.” In this episode, he shares his thoughts on why improv comedy improves speaking skills.

Avish Parashar’s Big Tip: “If no one has a problem with anything you’re doing, you’re probably not going far enough. If everyone seems to be pleased with what you’ve done, then you probably went a little middle of the road and tried to please everyone, and that’s not really where the success is going to come from. It’s going to come from pushing people a little bit and pushing your authenticity all the way out to the edge where … one or two people might say something like, ‘ah, that wasn’t for me.’ I think that’s the sweet spot.”
