Improv Wins presents Master Class w/ Brandon Gardner (Saturday)
Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM (CST)
From Seinfeld to Key and Peele
This is an improv workshop that will look to steal from written comedy. We'll talk about characters and situations from sit-coms and sketch to talk about what works and why and get up on our feet and use that to make our own improvised characters and scenes smarter and funnier.

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.
