About the Idea

HarshImprovNotes.com went live July 3, 2015. It is a simple idea has ballooned into a huge database of Harsh Improv Notes.

There are over 400 notes submitted, and you can submit your own!

All the notes are stored in a database and the site randomly pulls a reason using fancy computer magic.

The Details

Harsh Improv Notes came out of the idea that we often give and receive notes in improvisation. More often than not we privately take them to heart, stewing on them and thinking them over long after the note was given. Seldom do we share the good notes and even more rarely do we take the time and publicly share the negative notes.

I posted simple request to several online communities (Reddit's /r/improv and Rapid Fire Theatre on Facebook), then I sifted through the hundreds of responses and here I present to you the best ones.
