TCPTCP – Improvisation

Our improv classes are a great way to get involved in The Comedy Project community, meet people and have fun! This is your chance to learn in a safe, supportive environment that challenges everyone to be better. TCPTCP students will have access to the weekly “student-only jams” and will also get free admission to many shows and a chance to perform on stage.

Level One (De-Programming): Students learn the fundamentals of improvisation in a playful, group environment. Students learn technical aspects of performing as well as the building blocks of improvisation including listening, agreement, making choices and working in an ensemble.

Level Two (Software Update): Students build off the skills they learned from level one and apply them to different areas of improvisation including two person scenes, group scenes, complex short form games and moving into long form improvisation structures.

Level Three (Diagnostics):  Students  concentrate on grounded scene work and playing the truth in scenes.  Individualized feedback is provided to challenge and grow the student’s range. PREREQUISITE: Comedy Project’s Improv Level Two

Level Four (Overclocking): Students learn The Comedy Project’s unique improvised form (Domo Arigato) while working as an ensemble to create a polished show. PREREQUISITE: Comedy Project’s Improv Level Three
