We’ve decided to put the Improv Jam on hold while the COVID-19 situation plays out. It’s a massive shame but it’s also what’s best.
We’ll be letting people know as soon as it’s appropriate to run these courses again.
For now, stay healthy and keep laughing.
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!
No experience in improv or acting? Perfect. This is the course for you.
Stop by our next Taster Class if you want a try it out before jumping in.
What you’ll 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 observation and listening skills
- How to be more in the moment and spontaneous
- Stagecraft and stage presence
- Character creation on the fly
- An understanding of what makes a scene funny
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
I've never done acting or improvisation before. Can I join this course?
The L1 (Level 1) improv course is designed for those who have no experience of the stage. It's best you sign up for that one if you have no improv or acting experience.
The L1 course also works really well for those who have performing experience but none of it in improv comedy.
I already have improv or acting experience. Which course should I take?
Probably not the Level 1 course. It would be best to speak to us and we'll have a quick chat about your experience. There's a good chance we'll recommend you take a higher level course.
I can't make every session. Should I still sign up?
You should sign up if you think you'll be able to make at least 6 of the 8 sessions. Any fewer than that and you may find yourself falling behind.
Do I have to be funny and/or a fast thinker?
Nope. But that's kind of the point! It's a course that teaches you about some of the mechanics of comedy and thinking on your feet. If you want to be funny or be able to think a little quicker on your feet, you should definitely sign up to a course.
Will I have to perform on stage if I take this course?
There's no obligation to take to the stage at the end of a course; it's entirely optional. We do encourage, though, that you watch some shows to see how it all works (and also because they're hilarious). You can watch most of ImproQuo's live comedy shows for free if you're signed up to a course.
We can be flexible with payment and so if you’d rather not pay in full now, you can pay a deposit to lock in your place and pay the rest later. If you need further flexbility we can accommodate, just give us a shout.
