Description

Level 4: The Harold

If Chicago-style improv were music, The Harold would be the twelve-bar blues, the language that’s shared by all improvisers in this tradition. In addition to being a challenging and rewarding form in itself, The Harold is also a great teaching tool, and the skills learned in mastering it are applicable to almost every other form of improv. This level builds on and challenges all of the skills the students have learned up to this point.

This class includes a student showcase performance.

Cortnie Jones is an acclaimed comedic character actor and is widely regarded as one of the most versatile players in Austin improv. She is a veteran mainstage performer at ColdTowne Theater, where she began her education in 2007. Since then, she’s been delighting audiences as a founding member of some of Austin’s best comedy groups, including Sarah7, Echo Lake and Oakdale. Notable performances include Wanda in Braised in Texas and as a cast member of Bridgeport Correctional Facility Impromptu Short Form Players, Boy Band, Beach Boys Solve a Mystery, Slaughter Your Shorts, TGIS: My Stepdad is a Genie, Tweet Dreams and The Church of Indeterminate Divinity. She has appeared at numerous festivals, including The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival, The Big Sexy Weekend of Improv, The Dallas Comedy Festival, and the Austin Sketch Festival. You can catch her weekly performing on the hilarious, but not yet widely lauded Victrola Podcast, where she plays cops, terrified girls and annoying yuppies. She could be killing it on SNL right now, but prefers to spend her time doing bits, painting nails and teaching people to wrap sticks in artful ways.
