Michael Brown is an improviser. Born in Melbourne, Australia; he found himself in an improv course one day and never looked back. He currently lives in Chicago, Illinois; pursuing improv, comedy, and all the other things. A full creative CV can be found on the Resume page.

This blog is his living notebook of improv things that interest him or may be of interest to other improvisers – links, notes, videos, podcasts, and the odd promo or two. Michael blogs non-improv comedy things at Mike’s Secret Comedy Blog, and about everything else at Down The Docks.

Mike’s Secret Improv Blog is powered by WordPress, and uses the Scrawl theme by Caroline Moore for Automattic. The running man logo, the open book top and thumbs up icons are made by Freepik, and are licensed under CC BY 3.0. Michael’s headshot was taken by Andrew Watt.

Why is it a secret improv blog? Because it’s separate to Down The Docks. Being separate means that it’s easier to find specific improv information, plus those non-improvisers won’t get angry with all the improv posts.
