IMPROV for LIVING
Improv for Living (IFL) is a program of Applied Improvisation, a form of comedy that uses improv skills for personal application. Many improv courses advertise these benefits, but few offer content specifically for personal development.
Improv for Living is a program of Sacramento Comedy Foundation.

Boomer Edition • 6-Week Course
Our first IFL course, Boomer Edition, will introduce students to key improvisation skills and practice applying these lessons in daily life.
The sessions include mental and physical warm-ups, core exercises, stage work, and group discussions. While it is in no way considered psychological therapy, the class will be a safe space to apply improv games and exercises to real life challenges. This course is a way to play and laugh while practicing techniques that enhance your experience of life.
The class is designed to for people who consider themselves Baby Boomers, and is also accessible for people with energy and/or physical limitations.
Students should be ready to support their fellow participants by being sensitive, non-judgemental, and open to group connection. If these are life-skills you hope to develop, this course will help!
Liz Merry has been playing with Improvisation since her college days at U.C.L.A where she performed for two years with the campus troupe called Plastic Silverware. She has completed courses led by professional improvisers from the Groundlings, spent three years studying at BATS in S.F., and this summer will celebrate two years of taking Sacramento Comedy Foundation courses.
Liz developed a passion for Applied Improvisation as she adjusted from full-time work to semi-retirement due to health challenges and is eager to help others who seek a new perspective and love to laugh.
