Laugh and find your “funny” in a troupe of improv and sketch comedy students exploring scripted and unscripted humor. Learn to think on your feet as you hone your comedic chops.
The class teaches comic technique using a fun, character-based approach. Like the best comics, our students learn to find humor in truth as well as in absurdity.
This class is open to both new and returning students. Timing is everything, so register now!
