About the Event

We welcome you to the world of improvisational comedy in this 8-week course focused on the basics. This introductory class is perfect for complete beginners, you do not need prior experience in acting, comedy or improv. In fact, trying to be funny usually doesn't work in improvisation. Letting the funny happen spontaneously is normally when the laughs roll in. We create a fun and supportive atmosphere in our improv classes where students learn improv's core principal Yes-And: agree, accept and support.

As a team you will improvise stories one word at a time, sell soap that sings, host a TV show and speak expertly about 5G, tropical turtles or whatever else the audience throws at you!

A 2-hr improvisation class starts with some silly and fun improv warm-up exercises to loosen the body and mind. We move on to skill-based exercises and finish off with improvised games and scenes where we apply the skills we've learned. 

In Improvisation Level 1 you will:

  • retrain your brain to quiet the 'Editor'
  • get energized after 2 hours of lively improv exercises and games
  • learn how to play improv games with a single word as a suggestion
  • learn how to focus and follow your scene partner(s)
  • nurture that team vibe that helps the group create something from nothing
  • surprise yourself when you stop thinking and see what the moment produces
  • learn how to be more confident and own your space
  • learn to let yourself go and trust the team will get to the funny together
  • challenge yourself by trying something and being a beginner again

This course has even more to offer: a graduation show at the end of the 8-week class, FREE easylaughs Friday shows and Saturday/Sunday workshops for the duration of class and crazy good times with soon-to-be good friends.
