An 8-week class with easylaughs is a physical, mental, emotional, intellectual and spiritual workout.
  • push yourself out of your comfort zone
  • surprise yourself, at least twice, by what you're capable of
  • hone your presentation skills
  • feel embarassed and self-conscious, then get over it
  • begin to notice your patterns, triggers and default responses
  • improve your posture
  • improve your voice
  • align your voice with your posture
  • perform live in front of a real audience on the easylaughs main stage
  • feel pretty cool that you did it
And yes, you'll have fun too :)
PLUS all students get free entry to all easylaughs shows while their class is running - so that's your Fridays sorted as well!
Most students who take a level 1 class go on to sign up for level 2. Just sayin'...
What did you like about the class?
  • "I think it's great that the students get to watch the Crea shows for free, get involved in Powerball and perform a graduation show. I am now hooked on improv. The only downside is that "normal" life seems a bit dull!"

  • Masterclass: The Harold
    Thursday
    Apr 6
    Once improvisers move beyond the world of short-form games they hear about a format known as The Harold. Probably the most widely used of all longforms, it has its roots in Chicago improv in the 60s. What is it and why is it so popular? In this advanced class we will take a deep dive into the Harold. We will explore its many variations and along the way we will develop a mastery of some techniques useful for all longform players. Students will tune in to the group mind of their team, and experience for themselves what happens when "Harold appears"... exciting!
    Note: This class is aimed at advanced improvisers, if you're not sure whether that means you please contact Ben to discuss.
    The class runs over 7 weeks, weeks 5 and 6 will run for 3 hours to get more in-depth. Week 4 will be on Monday (Apr 24th) to avoid Kingsday.
    Maximum 10 participants in this class!
    Day and time:
    Thursday 20.00 - 22.00
    Dates:
    Apr 6 - May 18 (7 weeks)
