Hodder Studio will publish Improv Your Life by improv comedian Pippa Evans.
Publisher Myfanwy Moore bought world rights from agent Hannah Chambers at Chambers Management. The title will be published on 18th February 2021.
In Improv Your Life, Evans will reveal how lessons from improvisation can help readers take centre-stage in their own lives. She will take readers through the key stages of improvisation from knowing when to say “yes” (and when to say “no”) to working as part of a team, from helping to release their creative potential to learning how to embrace the moment.
Moore commented: "We are delighted to be working with the hugely talented Pippa on her first book. Her unrivalled experience, empathy, sense of fun, and accessible approach mean this book is a brilliant guide for how to make the most of life, and approach its challenges with confidence and joy."
Evans said: "Learning to improvise was so important for me as a performer and as a human being, trying to exist in this crazy world. I have wanted to write this book for many years and am so glad Hodder Studio has given me the opportunity to share the joys of improvisation with my fellow humans. If it helps people cope better with not knowing, if it moves people to be brave and support them in making big, bold life choices, then it will have done its job. Life is a whole lot better when you stop trying to get it right and just start improvising."
Evans is a core member of the Olivier award-winning "Showstopper! The Improvised Musical", she was a series regular on BBC Radio 4’s "The Now Show" and "I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue", and she is a dramaturg on "9 to 5: The Musical" at the Savoy Theatre.
