Art of Slow Comedy Weekend Intensives


Who Should Take This Workshop

  • IMPROVISERS looking for a new approach that’s real, grounded and honest.
  • ACTORS or IMPROVISERS who are new to improv who don’t have time to study during the week.
  • SEASONED IMPROVISERS who feel rusty and want to get their improv gears moving again.

Looking for a new approach to your improv? In Jimmy Carrane’s online Art of Slow Comedy weekend intensives, you’ll spend five hours learning a more honest approach to improvisation, which teaches students that before they can be funny they need to be real. By slowing down and shutting up, you will connect with your partner on a different level, making long form as easy as having a conversation.

In addition, you’ll begin to find your authentic voice. You can take the pressure off yourself to be funny — you just have to be yourself. The more you can tap into your own life experiences and be vulnerable on stage, the more laughs you will get from the audience. 

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 a memorable and funny performer.

“Jimmy forced me to think of myself as an actor, not a comedian. His approach to teaching, in turn, made me a more confident actor and a more truthful comedian.”
