Carl Kissin has taught improv to the elderly, the middle-aged, and twenty-somethings, but never have so many been so concerned as when they learned he would be instructing their kids. John Davis, a spokesperson for Parents of America, expressed his disapproval, “children are naturally spontaneous — they don’t need additional learning in that realm. Far more useful is intimidating them into sitting still and memorizing facts.” Despite threats, protests, and a mass exodus of everyone under twelve years old in New York State, Carl intends to do it anyway.
