The concept of repeating words is not foreign to improv teachings. I’ve heard it many times before. But, with Ed it’s seems to not just be about the words. It’s about the how. How you say it, how you feel as you say it. Sometimes it doesn’t even need words, it could be just the how. You could be mad, frustrated, happy, whatever. As your partner repeats, you repeat and heighten the emotion.
