Improv Classes

Art of Slow Comedy Level 2: The Guts

Wednesdays, Feb. 25-April 1, 6-8 p.m.
Green Shirt Studio, 4407 N Clark St., Chicago

Who should take this class:
• Improvisers looking for a new approach to their work. An honest, less rapid-fire style for more real mind-blowing long form improvisation.

• Students wanting to slay their next conservatory or team audition.

• Actors looking to add improvisation to their toolboxes for better commercial auditions and more callbacks.

In this second level of Jimmy Carrane’s Art of Slow Comedy improvisation approach, you’ll bring your unique life experiences and improvisation skills together to create powerful (and more successful) two-person scenes. Great improv isn’t about forms. However, this class level will teach you forms that will make your skills as an improviser, ensemble member, and scene partner shine.

Key class rewards:  
• Discovering how your unique life experiences are your tools to become a more compelling performer.
• Learning to react honestly and emotionally to your scene partners.
• Building scenes by listening and reacting off the last words spoken.
• Learning how to be human. Audiences will relate to real people, because they’re watching real people.

Class format: 6 weeks, 12 total hours of play time and instruction.
Class size: Limited to 12 students MAX
Price: $279. Early Bird Special $249 if you sign up by Feb. 1.

Next class: Feb. 25-April 1
