The comedy thing? Sounds like complete nightmare to me. lol. I think it is a good idea if you cope with it though.

as strange as this sounds I was thinking about that not long ago ... I had driven by a local place that does improv and I wondered how people do that ... I wished I had the courage to try it ... ( maybe someday 😅 not yet ... ) ... anyways I say why not ... give it a try ... let us know how it goes ... I’d be very curious to hear.

I think you should try it :) Especially if that interests you. Plus, if the worst case scenario (in your head) happens, you don’t have t go anymore. But it is worth it to attend and feel it out. I think it would be a great way to meet people because clubs and classes like those tend to become friend-like easily. I wish you well!

I think it can be helpful in some ways - thinking on your feet, reading the audience etc are all things that aid in normal conversation anyways! And hey, you can also make some friends while you're there too :)
