Event Details

Improv Wins brings you a master class from Brandon Gardner.  Brandon is going to be teaching a Sunday workshop on mastering the art of the straightman from 2:30-5:30 at The New Movement.  Brandon is one of the top teachers at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York.  Spots in this workshop are limited.  Reserve you spot asap.
A Good Straight Man Says No Once

This workshop will focus on the unsung hero of improv: The straight man.  How can you point out your partner's absurd behavior while at the same time setting them up for more of it?  How can you frame what's funny for the audience by reacting to it truthfully while at the same time helping to justify it?  In this workshop we'll explore what it means to say "a good straight man says no once, then finds a way to say yes."

Brandon has been a performer and writer at the UCB Theater in New York since 2007 and has been an instructor there since 2009.  He has been a member of UCB house teams Bastian, Let’s Have a Ball, Reuben Williams, Improv Nerds and The Curfew and is a regular at UCB’s flagship show ASSSSCAT 3000. In addition to performing in NYC, Brandon is a member of the UCB TourCo All-Stars with whom he performs and teaches workshops around the world.

As a senior teacher Brandon has helped develop the UCB Training Center curriculum and has taught over one-hundred 8 week courses at every level.  He has taught Advanced Level classes in Harolds, Scene Work, Improvised Plays and Improv to Sketch. Outside of UCB, Brandon is an active playwright and director.
