Lockdown Update – September 3:  Due to the length of the ongoing lockdown, we are once again offering online sketch comedy writing courses – save 50% on our intro course with code LOCKDOWN50. All other events are postponed until further notice. If you book for an upcoming improv workshop, it will be postponed on a rolling basis to match the length of the lockdown – i.e. some improv courses listed for October/November start dates may actually begin in January. By booking now you are saving your spot.

Improv Level 4 - The Harold: Scene Work

This class serves as your introduction to the Harold format, with an emphasis on calling back scenes through second and third beats, with prescribed openings and group games.
COVID Safe Plan In Place For In-Person Workshops
Curriculums modified to promote physical distancing Face mask recommendations follow latest DHS advice
Increased cleaning and hygiene Only registered students/faculty allowed on premises

Congratulations, your stand alone scenes are refined! Now it's time to learn how to connect scenes meaningfully in the Harold, the standard improv format of the Improv Conspiracy.

You'll learn how to perform and draw information from openings, which are the tools that allow us to expand a single suggestion into 30 minutes of material.

Once we have first beats down, we'll work on ways to bring themes, games and characters back in our second and third beats.

We'll briefly touch on group games, and get you ready to perform your first Harold in front of an audience!

Recent feedback from Improv Level 4 - The Harold: Scene Work students:

"The format of the Level 4 workshop was great! The Harold seemed like a scary beast at the start of the term but by the end of it, I felt confident in my ability to understand and perform the structure – and enjoy playing in it!" Jeanne-Clare S.
"The Level 4 syllabus at TIC is a great intro to the complex form that is the Harold. We learnt not only the structure of the show, but also common styles and reliable techniques to create a cohesive, impressive performance!" Kieran B.
