Before you can be funny you have to be real. In this intensive six-week class you'll learn the basic principals of The Art of Slow Comedy, which make long-form improvisation as easy as having a conversation!
The best way to learn is by doing, and the right time to leap is always NOW!
Class runs 6;30-8;30 April 27-June 1st, with students performing in a show at 7:30pm on June 1st for friends and family.
