Improv Comedy Class ~ how do they do that??
Great Improv Comedy does not happen with luck - it is a learnable skill - and a great skill for actors, comics, writers or any human who wants to unleash their spontaneity and creativity. A structured series of warmup exercises, games and scenes will introduce you to the basics of improv technique. In this active class you will laugh really hard while learning how to let go, be silly and play well with others.
