As BATS improvisers, we often find ourselves producing humorous scenes without intending to. In this class we’ll attempt to answer the questions: what makes for funny improv? How can we make our audience laugh while staying true to the principles of good improv?

In this one-day intensive for intermediate to advanced improvisers, we’ll build on foundational BATS skills of grounded, connected improv and add on concepts from comedic formats in order to hone in on the humor in the scene. We’ll explore concepts like the game of the scene, beats, physicality, sincerity, and playing at the top of your intelligence.


We have community standards, a conflict process, and a COVID prevention policy in place. Agreement/acceptance of these policies is required to participate in BATS classes. Please use the links above to access and read these policies, and check the boxes during registration to indicate your agreement/confirmation.

**All students are required to provide proof of vaccination and booster (if eligible) before the first day of class. You will receive an email from shortly after registration with a link to do so. Please do this ASAP.

(If you are participating in a virtual class and do not meet the vaccination requirements for attending an in-person event, you are still in compliance with the policy because you are not attending in-person events.)
