Whose Line is it Anyway? Props

A bunch of games of props strung together.
Alexthana Andersoulis's insight:

Question 1.

Imagine you are one of the actors on Whose Line is it Anyway ; to help other aspiring actors for the show, develop a list of tips that would help successfully improvise a scene. (5 tips minimum)

 

Question 2.

How would this affect the performance and why? Give example by selecting two stock characters for each actor and predict how they might interact.
