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 about looking at the many different types of improv games that exist and figuring out what makes them funny. We’ll also be taking a peak at handling yourself on stage and the benefits of becoming familiar with your team.
Some experience is necessary for this course. Either you’ve done a beginner’s improv course before (with anyone, not just us) or you’ve already been doing improv for a while (e.g. you’re in a troupe).
If you’ve done zero improv or acting before, consider the Level 1 Improv Comedy Course.
What you’ll be doing in this Improv Course
This course will cover quite a few things. There will be a lot of time spent looking at different types of improv games, how they work and how to get the most funny out of them. And there are quite a few types of games:
- Continuation/Collaborative (e.g. word at a time)
- Audience participation
- And more
The list really does go on.
What you’ll get out of the Course
A better understanding of how to play improv games in a way that gets the laughs. You’ll also be given tips on how to put on a good show.
There will also be the opportunity to find other performers that you may want to collaborate with. Networking is where it’s at in showbiz.

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.
