The Power of Positivity with "Ted Lasso" in partnership with AppleTV+ | Comic Relief US

One of the things that I love about improv is the positivity of 'yes-and', which is also why I love Ted Lasso so much. It's a show where story beats turn on connection rather than on conflict (and it has its roots solidly in the improv world from creators Jason Sudeikis and Brendan Hunt).

The cast and creators of "Ted Lasso" sit down for an exclusive Q&A with award-winning writer-director ("Love Actually") and Comic Relief US’ founder Richard ...

Improv Duo Choose F.C. as the Home of Their Fictional Cast of Characters | Falls Church News-Press Online

“Educated” and “wealthy” probably come to mind when thinking about the people of Falls Church, while “funny”...not so much. But don’t tell local improv comics Lauren Morrell and Peter Narby that, as they found the Little City to be the perfect setting for their podcast.
