Donde Esta The Funny?
A lot of us improvise because we like to be funny; however, improv is an artform in which it can
be very difficult to be genuinely funny. Where do we find the comedy in our scenes? This
workshop will give you different tools to help you know what to look for, identify your role in the
comedy, and exploit these to get the most comedy you can from your scene. This workshop is
for all levels.
At the top of our scenes, we need to explore and be as curious as possible to help us discover
characters traits, environment, relationships, conflict, etc… When does this exploration need to
stop so we can focus on and enjoy what we have built? As improvisers, we are great at
discovering new ideas, but we rarely explore those ideas in great depth. This class will focus on
the exploration of what we have built instead of constantly making new discoveries.
Each workshop is $30/ $60 for both
Free parking available 1/2 a block away at 17th and Harney. Parking also available on the street (metered until 9pm).
