Saturdays 12-2pm Improv Comedy Class/Jam Session

A must for any performer but all can benefit from our weekly comedy class. In addition to having a ton of fun playing improv games – skits, songs, warm-up and technique building – simply playing these games develop valuable life skills – creativity, critical thinking, communications (listening, public speaking), focus, , self confidence, self awareness and even empathy. We use the same games in corporate workshops to teach team building, leadership, sales and service. We also use to teach k12 students SEL – Social Emotional Learning.

COMEDY CAMP 4 Kids, & Teens

Each week is a self contained session with classes in improv and stand-up comedy. Monday starts with a master class in Improv Comedy, introducing a number of warm-up, technique and performance games. Then we move into an open-mic style session where students develop original stand-comedy routines, starting with personal stories of observation and experience. Tuesday – Thursday are more like rehearsals than classes. A series of mock performance sessions develop experienced performers. Every week we introduce new games, review class faves and develop a new 2-3 minutes of stand-up comedy which get presented at our weekly showcase, Friday at 2pm. 

We have two to three adult teaching artists plus a number of teen interns every day, allowing us to break into smaller groups based on age and skills level.
