$125/$100 with Early Bird code ImprovNerd (before December 20)
Winner of the 2012 INNY award for best comedy class, The Art of Slow Comedy teaches students before they can be funny they need to be real and how to slow down so you can find the “game” in the scene quicker. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to connect with your partner so your scene work will be more grounded and real, making long form as easy as having a conversation.
