Two Person Scene Tune Up Workshop


The Art of Slow Comedy classes were named in Chicago Magazine’s “5 Great Comedy Classes for Fall 2015!”

Two-Person Scene Tune-Up — Sunday, Dec 30, 2018

Improvisers often think that using cool forms, editing and walk-ons will make them better. But if you don’t have good two-person scenes, those other tricks won’t do much good. In this workshop, we get back to the basics, making sure you can truly connect with your partner. Jimmy will observe your work to find out what you are doing well and help you find your blind spots so you can be more connected, memorable and yes, funny.

THIS WORKSHOP IS LIMITED TO 14 PEOPLE.

Dec 30th, 2018, 12:30-3:30 p.m. at Stage 773 (1225 W. Belmont, Chicago)

Intro to the Art of Slow Comedy — 

The Art of Slow Comedy is a fresh approach to scenic improvisation, based on the idea before you can be funny you need to be real. In this award-winning workshop, you will be introduced to Jimmy Carrane’s unique method and learn how to connect with your partner so your scene work will be more grounded and real, making improvisation as easy as having a conversation.

You will be amazed how easy and fun it is to work this way, leading you to some of your best improv yet. This workshop is for seasoned improvisers looking for a new approach and actors who are new to improv. In this three-hour workshop we will focus on:

  • Tapping into your vulnerability and being more honest in your improv
  • Playing the reality of the scene and reacting emotionally to heighten the circumstances
  • Instantly connecting with you partner on a unspoken level, giving you a road map to the scene
  • Learning to trust your instincts and access your life experiences

THIS WORKSHOP IS LIMITED TO 14 PEOPLE.

What past students are saying:

“Some people are just born to be teachers, they’ve got that gift. Jimmy has that gift. I’m so grateful to him, and I recommend him to everybody I know… certainly anyone interested in improv, but also actors not interested in improv, and people not interested in acting!”
Mary Redman

“Jimmy is a fantastic improv teacher! I have taken many of his classes, some multiple times, and every time I learn something new! I couldn’t recommend The Art of Slow Comedy more!”
