A four-week introduction to the core skills of improvised comedy.


Each 2.5 hour workshop will involve a mixture of fun games, improv exercises, scenes, and group activities. Participants will be given a thorough grounding in improvised comedy techniques, including:


Listening
Spontaneity
“Yes And”
Staying open and flexible in performance
Trusting and developing ideas
Creating interesting characters


Complete beginners welcome! You don't need any drama, acting, comedy or improv experience whatsoever.

 

You don't have to be clever, fast or funny either! Improvised comedy is not the same as stand-up - you're not alone on stage, and it's not about telling jokes.

 

It's about working together as a team with other improvisers to spontaneously create group stories, scenes and sketches.

 

Will's improv workshops are always a low-stakes, safe, and extremely supportive environment. The pressure to be funny and clever is non-existent! Instead, participants are encouraged to be obvious and to have fun.
