Ok. After your misguided attempt to make money, I assume you turned back to your one true love? Where did you get your improv training?

Good. Ok, how do you decide which discovery is most interesting? Which thread to follow?
PAM: Can you expound further on the idea of "following your fears" as a way to best discover the most interesting thread to follow? I specifically am curious on how best an improviser, such as myself, can use this guidepost to lead to the more theatrically and comically interesting discoveries on stage.
In real life, we sometimes guard ourselves with less-than-true responses. We can afford to be honest on stage. Afford to be afraid. Afford to be unlikable. Afford to be sweet.
"Follow the fear" is a guide to lead the direction of a scene. Is this frightening? Yes? Then this is the right direction.
