WHY IMPROV COMEDY?

  1. It's fun. Creating comedy is the one thing more fun than watching it.
  2. Self Confidence - Simply playing these games in our safe space builds confidence in self. Over come stage freight, social anxieties and general fear of the unknown that holds so many back.
  3. Public Speaking - Develop public speaking and leadership skills. Practice makes purpose.
  4. Team Skills - we use these same games to teach fortune 500 companies team building. Listen with a deeper focus.
  5. Creative Writing/Critical Thinking - William Fry, the humor guru from Stanford U, says comedy is the art of comparing things in bizarre ways. This builds a better brain. We teach story telling. Playing these games, one learns to think on their feet and out of the box.
