Freestyle rapping + Beatboxing + Improv =

Minds Blown!

FRIDAY 2/15 1PM - 330PM

Shaun Fisher is a New York improviser and beatboxer for New York’s premier freestyle/improv group North Coast. Trained at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Shaun continues to study and pursue as many comedic avenues as possible. Similar to Edward James Olmos, Shaun was born in Miami.

Have you always wanted to learn to freestyle rap and beatbox but always felt embarrassed to try? Or maybe you've always wanted to learn how to beatbox? Or perhaps you have gotten pimped into rapping in an improv scene and froze? Or perhaps you have seen a North Coast show and wonder how we do what we do? No matter what your reason may be, come to these workshops and we will teach you how to spit with the best of them, beatbox like a champion, and how to weave it all together with the fun and "rules" of improv. At a core level improv and hip-hop go hand in hand. Whether you are dropping a beat into a mic or initiating an improv scene, the same principles apply!

1. feel more confident in your rapping skills
2. know the basic fundamentals of beatboxing
3. explore the difference between want and game (fun, interesting, and repeatable pattern)
4. know how to get from a scene into a rap
5. have a better understanding of what a longform "rap" improv show looks like
