This meetup is for anyone interested in learning and practicing improv. You don't need to be an actor or comedian to enjoy this incredibly fun art form. You also don’t need to be “funny” or have any experience. This group is for beginners and seasoned improvisers.  Not only is improv fun, it also improves social skills, builds confidence, enhances creativity, promotes mindfulness...you get the idea.

Also, please "like" our performing group on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/sketchynashville to learn more about upcoming shows and other events.

Here are a few common improv guidelines to get you thinking:

1. Yes AND…

If someone tells you that you are a "purple donkey from the planet Fultron," accept it and hit all-fours. Add to it. Don’t deny anything a partner says.

2. Don’t Try to be Funny

Usually, it is the most mundane, random detail that gets the biggest laugh. Don’t force funny or it will show. In other words, there’s no pressure!

3. Make Your Partners Look Good

It’s not about you. Improv is about making the people around you look like comedic geniuses. In other words, there’s no pressure!

4. Commit

Whether you make a great choice or not, commit whole-heartedly during a scene. It’s just a choice. You really can’t mess up. In other words…

Speaking of committing: To help ensure everyone gets a chance to participate, we will limit each meeting to the first 12 people to sign up. Please, please, please commit to attending when you register so that someone doesn’t miss the chance to participate.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
