Annoyance

AP1: Intro to Improv: Monday

AP1 is an all-encompassing survey course that will give anyone a solid foundation in improvisational comedy – whether you want to perform, direct, write, or just know more. New to improv? This class is probably for you. The class culminates into a one night only class show. AP1 introduces you to The Annoyance’s approach to improv by covering a wide variety of concepts:

  • “the rules” and breaking the rules
  • Group mind (the myth, the facts)
  • How to say “no”
  • Creating the game
  • Character driven scene work
  • Initiations
  • Long-form
  • Short-form
  • Writing via improv
  • Direction (taking and giving)
  • Object and environment work
