Improvhi Comedy 201B Intensive (Must have completed 201A) @ Happiness U at SALT in Kakaako
Dec 4 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This class will take the tools learned in our 101 Basics classes and apply them to comedic long form improv scenes. Students will dive deep into finding the “funny” of their scenes, building relationships, identifying patterns, heightening within the scene and group games. Students will also be introduced to several different long form openings to help generate ideas for their scenes.

At the end of the 201C session, students will have the opportunity to perform a showcase for invited guests.

All classes are 3 hours long. Students will learn the value of “yes, and”-ing, listening, agreement, support, and more in a safe, nonjudgmental environment.

Because intensive sessions only 2 weeks long, there are no make up classes available. Students must participate in both weeks to move onto the next level.

Prerequisite:

Must have completed 201A within 1 year

Class Dates:

Wednesdays – 12/04 and 12/11

Class Times:

6pm – 9pm
