This is an 8 week improv course that will take place every week on the day and time outlined above.
This course is all about exercises that jazz you up and free your mind, and games that push and challenge you to be your funniest self. By the end you’ll always be the funniest person in the room!
What you will be doing in the Sessions
Other than laughing? Mostly hilarious drama exercises that will learn you some important improvisation skills which you can use both on and off the stage.
Many of the useful skills covered include:
- Good and observation listening skills
- Stagecraft and stage presence
- Basic character creation
- An understanding of what makes a scene funny
At the very end of the course you’ll be offered the (optional) opportunity to perform with your classmates in one of ImproQuo’s monthly shows, giving you the chance to put your new skills to good use straight away in front of a small, chilled audience. No pressure, obvs.
What you’ll get out of the course
A bloody good time. But more tangibly, you will also gain a basic understanding of scene and character work for the comedy stage, and you will have played a variety of improv games which you can take with you anywhere (quite a few double as, or are derived from parlour games). You may even find that ideas come more readily to you in many situations.
We can be flexible with payment and so if you’d rather not pay in full now, you can pay half at some point before your first session and the other half by the 5th session. Simply click the Pay Offline button.

Why not come to one of our comedy improv shows? If you show up to our monthly Bridge Street Irregulars night and mention that you’re considering taking this class, you’ll get free entry for yourself.
Alternatively, we have the Manchester Improv Jam, which is a free improv session run weekly just for fun and always has new people with no performing experience rocking up to let loose after work.
