Andrew & Adrian always start each session with a series of fun and interactive warm-up exercises to ensure everyone is comfortable with the fundamentals of improv and each other.
After we have warmed-up our bodies and minds we'll jump right into a hilarious set of improv games. You'll have plenty of opportunity to embrace your inner goof-ball as you practice your spontaneous and creative side among your supportive peers.
In addition to this, and for more challenging play time, we'll also explore skits, sketch comedy, acting, character development and other more advanced improv comedy techniques.
And now a brief description of our talented
and experienced improv instructors...
Adrian R. Anger Adrian first landed at the Second City training centre in search of fun and a challenge for this otherwise shy giant. And
it wasn't long before he was hooked! Adrian wound up taking a number of improv and stand-up classes and has performed at the John Candy Box Theatre, Second City main stage and Absolute Comedy.
Andrew has taken several improv classes through the Second City training centre, hosted improv meetups and performed on stage at the John Candy Box Theatre at Second City.

Top 10 poor excuses to not do improv ...
10. "I have to wash my hair" ... while we endorse proper scalp
hygiene, our participants find we offer a convenient schedule to work around
follicular care and maintenance
9. "My hamster died" ... hmm, actually this is a good excuse,
our condolences to you in this difficult time, please feel free to rejoin us
once the mourning period for Sparky is complete
8. "I have this rash" ... I'm not a doctor, but if I were a
doctor I'd probably tell you to go see a doctor
7. "There has to be a catch" ... The Improv Guys simply love
improv, this isn't a front to get you to buy a timeshare or invest in some
crazy scheme (you're giving us way too much credit if you think we're that
6. "I am a very shy person" ... have a drink! they don't
nickname our instructor "Hungover" for nothing
5. "I heard improv is kind of lame" ... if by "lame"
you mean awesome, hilarious and better than a cozy night by the fireplace, then
lame it is
4. "I don't like to have fun" ... there is only one cure my
friend, and that is improv!
3. "There are voices inside my head" ... that's okay, as long
as you share with us what they are saying
2. "I have no background in theatre or performing of any kind"
... not a problem, we usually have a good mix of newbies and veterans, all in a
comfortable and supporting environment.
And the number one poor excuse to not do improv ... "I am not a very
funny person" ... you do not need to be funny, just willing to have fun,
that's the beauty of improv!
