Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it free?
We really want to encourage more diversity in our little corner of the arts world: different races, religions, orientations, genders and all else. And what better way to coax people out of the house than with free stuff?
Also, we're crazy confident you'll enjoy it. Like any performing art, it's something that needs to be experienced to really see its value.
Can I bring a friend?
Stuff like this can be a little nerve-wracking if you've never done anything like it before. But you might find it a little easier to jump in if you've got a familiar face around.
Share this page with your friends and ask them to come with.
Do you encourage diversity?
100%. Improvisation is all about collaboration, and it gets better when there are plenty of different and unique points of view contributing to the group.
There's also a notable lack of diversity in our industry and we're doing what we can to change that.
What is improv comedy?
Improvisational comedy is, typically, comedy scenes, sketches and games played out by performers without a script. Often, the audience will provide a suggestion on something like where the scene should take place (a restaurant, for example) to inspire the performers, and the performers will then improvise the performance for that scene.
There are many different forms of improv comedy but the fundamental principles of collaboration and support remain consistent throughout.
Do I have to be funny?
Nope. But you will be laughing in the class, for sure.
The point of these classes is to teach you how to be funny. Expecting people to be professional funny folk before even joining a class would be pretty unreasonable.
