Would you like to be an improv performer at the Sacramento Comedy Spot? It all starts with being cast on a Gordon Team.
Gordon teams are made up of BRAND NEW improv performers who have just finished their improv classes and now have an opportunity to continue their training through regular rehearsals and performances. Gordon team members are eligible to be cast on Harold teams.


If interested, please read the following information and RSVP via the form below. We will be inviting students to join Gordon teams, and/or holding auditions, every three months. 


Our Gordon teams perform every Wednesday night following our Harold teams. Gordon team members rehearse every Wednesday with a Comedy Spot coach. Our goal is to give performers an opportunity to continue their training through regular rehearsals and performances. Gordon teams perform the Harold style of improv. Gordon team performers DO NOT PAY to be part of these teams. The Comedy Spot pays coaches to work with performers. The Comedy Spot is committed to giving our performers every opportunity to grow and improve. Gordon team members will be eligible to be cast on Harold teams.


• Performers must be currently enrolled in, or have completed, Improv 301 after successfully completing Improv 101 and Improv 201. All three of these improv classes prepare students to be Harold performers.

• Submit your name via the RSVP form below.


What to Expect
• Performers should arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled audition time and sign in.
• Performers will be split into teams and will be asked to perform a complete Harold: Monologue Opening, 1st-3rd Beats, and Group Scenes.
• New Gordon team performers will be announced here a few days after auditions.


We encourage performers at the Comedy Spot to wear casual clothing. Please remember to wear soft soled closed toed shoes- No flip flops, sandals, or heels. Wear clothing that allows you to be physical and move freely while remaining appropriately covered. No skirts, short shorts, or anything too revealing.
