About the Author

Mick Napier is the founder of the acclaimed Annoyance Theatre in Chicago and New York, as well as a Director and Artistic Consultant for The Second City, the most influential and prolific comedy theater in the world. Napier is known both nationally and internationally as an innovator and creative force in comedy, improvisation, and theatre. His first book, Improvise: Scene from the Inside Out has become required reading for many improv students. With the Annoyance, Mick has spent more than 25 years developing and cultivating a style of work and production that has been both acclaimed and imitated. As a Director and Artistic Consultant for the globally renowned Second City, he made his mark, having directed more than 10 revues there including the 40th and 50th Anniversary revues, and Paradigm Lost, which earned him a Joseph Jefferson Award for Direction.


"Mick has been the catalyst for the most messed-up, funny, smart, low-budget, loud, subversive, hilarious, mind-expanding improv shows of his time." -- Bob Odenkirk, Star of Better Call Saul
