  • An introduction to the principles of improv (listening and saying yes)
  • Practice exercises in pairs and in groups
  • An opportunity to play ‘Whose line is it anyway’ shortform improv games in front of the group

Who is this course suitable for?

  • Adults aged 18 – 100.
  • All levels and abilities. Beginners are very welcome.
  • Stand-up comedians, anyone wanting to get into comedy for the first time.
  • Any human wishing to try improv for the first time or needing a refresher.
