What you'll learn in this improv class:

In comparison to sketch and stand up comedy, improv is unplanned and unscripted. The most collaborative of the comedic art forms, the dialogue, action, story and characters are born from cohesive group work, spontaneity, grounded scenes and the talent to wield an entertaining world all based off an audience suggestion.

Find Your Funny: A Crash Course on Improv Comedy welcomes students of ALL levels of experience and provides a safe space for those who have an active interest in exploring improv (be it as a hobby or career). Students will receive a comprehensive, working survey of all the fundamentals of comedic improvisation as taught by the world’s leading schools of comedy (UCB, iO, The Second City.)

The crash course is filled a brief history of the rise of comedic improv to mainstream success (UCB, Whose Line Is It Anyway?) and filled with supportive, fun and educational exercises to establish confidence to pursue further professional training, find your funny and ultimately command the stage.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.
