About this workshop
In this 2 hour hands-on workshop, we’ll work on improvising during your set, interacting with the audience, and how improv can help with your comedic writing. We’ll do several improv exercises specifically to help stand up comedians think on their feet, react authentically in the moment, and brainstorm premises and more surprising twists. This is a space to practice reading the room and engaging with the crowd.
