3. Don't think so hard. Sometimes, it's okay to go with your first gut instinct. In improv, it's not the wackiest suggestions or most outlandish situations that get the biggest laughs, sometimes it's the most obvious or the first that spring to mind.
I get caught up on this a lot. I think I have to write the world's most original essay or use the biggest word I can think of when I'm working on a print article. I used to tell my creative writing students, there's no such thing as a completely original story. Just tell your story YOUR way.
