Two-Person Scene Tune-Up Workshop

Jan. 3, 12-3 p.m.
Stage 773, 1225 W. Belmont, Chicago

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. Class limited to 14 people. Only $79!

Next class: Jan. 3, 12-3 p.m. at Stage 773
