I've posted plenty of reasons to take an improv class. It will make you happier and smarter, improve your friendships, make you think fast, which will improve your mood, inspire other adventures, and can even be your way to love people. Here's another one, play has spillover effects on your learning:
Playfulness was associated with better academic performance (i.e., better grades in an exam). Also, students who described themselves as playful were more likely to do the extra reading that went beyond what was needed to pass the exam. This can be seen as first evidence of a positive relation between playfulness in adults and academic achievement.
