If the idea of getting up on stage, or in front of a camera, without a script makes you feel like you want to pee yourself, don't worry.  We've got two of the hottest actors on the Improv scene, Grasie Mercedes and Josh Covitt, to help work your Improv kegel.

Grasie Mercedes is that elusive mix of hilarous & hot.  She keeps the masses entertained as a host, actor/comedian, and celebrity fashion consultant.  You can currently catch this savvy stylist helping those less fashionable on the MTV series, "Girl, Get Your Mind Right!"  You can also find her making some funny with her Improv team, Triggerfinger at IO West in Hollywood.

Josh Covitt is proof that you can be a comedian without being a basketcase.  This guy could quite possibly be one of the most Talented and nicest people in Hollywood.  Oxymoron?  Nope.  Covitt is deeply entrenched in the Improv scene doing sketch shows at Upright Citizens Brigade and M.I.'s Westside Comedy Theater, as well as starring in a slew of tv commercials.  The guy works harder than Seacrest. And I wouldn't be surprised if we saw Josh Covitt on SNL sometime soon.

What is Improv? And why is it important for actors to take Improv classes?  Who are the best teachers?  Grasie and Josh will answer all these questions and more on the next "Lights, Camera...ACTOR!"
