Our FAQ covers everything from pricing, to what’s in the guide, and information about how to get your school to cover the costs. If your question isn’t answered here then email

Do I have to know about improv?

No! Everything you’ll need is covered in the facilitator guide. We assume that you have no knowledge of improv comedy.

What is improv?

Improv is live theatre without a script, focusing on on-the-spot creativity. Applied improv uses these principles for real-world applications like team building and leadership. Our guide equips you to infuse your environment with these dynamic, team-boosting concepts.

Why improv comedy?

Improv, a form of unscripted theatre, is a very effective method for teaching adaptability, communication, & teamwork skills to students (research). Through improv, students learn to actively listen, present confidently, and collaborate seamlessly, even in high-stress scenarios. We believe that students learn best by doing, and thus, our workshop designs are interactive and engaging.

Tell me more about the exercises in this guide!

Applied improvisation, the type of improv used in this guide, uses improv comedy techniques for real-world applications like business and education. This guide offers engaging exercises to boost students’ skills in creativity, teamwork, and quick thinking. Through fun games and activities, students learn valuable life skills like active listening and adaptability, aiming to make them better innovators and communicators.

How did you create this guide?

It would have been much easier if we just threw together 11 exercises. But we didn’t. We have extensively tested every exercise in this facilitator guide during our Facilitator-led workshops, and continue to use them. At the end of (almost) every workshop, we ask every participant to give us feedback on their experience and we use their feedback to improve our workshops. This guide is the result of years of workshop facilitation.

Who is the author?

As a seasoned entrepreneur, professional speaker, and founder of Green Light Improv, Nathan Minns has dedicated his career to helping people embrace new ideas, experiences, and connections. Nathan has spent most of his career in the startup ecosystem as an employee and a 3x founder. His online courses on web design have earned over 60,000 enrollments from 179 countries. He has spearheaded startup initiatives for major corporations and became the youngest board member at a youth leadership development nonprofit in 2017.

This epiphany led Nathan to create Green Light Improv & this guide.

I can't decide: should I book Nathan to speak, or buy this guide?

We’re excited to offer this guide to boost students’ adaptability and teamwork through the arts. While it’s a great start, it can’t fully replicate the dynamic experience of a live session with our founder, Nathan Minns. Known for his energy and expertise, Nathan adds a unique value that’s worth considering for your group. Your purchase is just the beginning of our partnership, and we offer various services to meet your needs. Thanks for your commitment to student growth, and feel free to reach out for more.

Can I get my school to pay for this?

Many schools have budgets allocated for teacher resources like this guide. If this is the case for you, then great! If your school doesn’t explicitly say they have that budget, it’s sometimes worth having a discussion with them to see if it’s a possibility. Typically, you’d engage in a conversation with your school’s administrative team or department head, outlining what the facilitator guide is and how you would use it, what change you expect to see in your students, and how the students will apply the learnings to their everyday lives.

How does payment work?

We accept Mastercard, Visa, American Express, & PayPal, with download available immediately after purchase. If those options don’t work for you or you need an invoice, please email us at
