This eight-week Improv 101 course is the perfect fit for everyone! We teach you all the basics of improv. Basically, you are going to laugh for two hours each week and play like a kid! You will learn how to create comedy scenes off the top of your head, with no preparation or planning, inspired by students’ true stories. You will learn basic improv skills, like accepting and building on other student ideas, establishing and playing the pattern of the scene, and heightening your pattern from grounded to crazy town. You want to just have fun? You want to perform someday? This class is for everyone!

Okay, let’s do this. Register. Stop messing around. Annnd, go!

At the end of the class students will perform in front of a live audience in a class performance.

Know before you go: Wear comfortable clothes, closed-toed shoes, and be prepared to move! Bring something to take notes, if desired. 

Note: Students are strongly encouraged to see Comedy Spot shows related to their course of study while enrolled. Students will be given ID cards that give them unlimited admission to shows Sunday through Thursday at the Comedy Spot.
