Joanne Brokaw is an award-winning writer, improvisor, and the author of two books: What the Dog Said, and other adventures in everyday life, and most recently, Suddenly Stardust: A memoir (of sorts) about fear, freedom & improv. Despite her list of creative accomplishments, for most of her career she’s been a chronic ‘fraidy cat with a terminal case of procrastination. Then she discovered improvisational comedy. Now she leads workshops, performs regularly with her improv and comedy teams, and tries to “Yes, And” life’s curveballs.
Joanne talks about her journey into improv, the foundations of improv and how they can apply to your life, how fear can stop you from pursuing your purpose, and the freedom that comes from learning how to wrangle fear.
Three songs that would be on the soundtrack of her life: 1st song: “(Theme From) The Monkees”; 2nd song: “Boogie Shoes” by KC and the Sunshine Band; and 3rd song: “Hand in My Pocket” by Alanis Morissette.
