Monkey Butler Workshop - Downtown Denver - Levels 1 & 2
Monkey Butler is a FREE Improv Comedy Acting Workshop open to all ages and skill levels. The beginner (Level 1) workshop runs from 7-8:45pm, and the intermediate and advanced workshop (Level 2) runs from 9 to 10:45pm. Beginners are welcome to stay to watch the development of the more advanced students. This downtown Denver location is new, beginning June 2018. Our improv comedy coaches at this location are Tom Grimmer (who trained in Orlando, Florida, at the SAK Comedy Lab, training with improv comedian celebrity Wayne Brady) and J. Murdock (previously the Director of Monkey Butler Boulder and Berrien Springs as well as the Director/Creator of the Red Pill Improv group in Riverside, California). This unique form of fun and creativity is a wonderful way to break free of your everyday roles and let loose in an encouraging environment. Join us every Thursday night at 7pm and make new friends while growing in your improv skills. The environment is laid back and the idea is to have fun and learn. It's a great way to learn a little about yourself, meet new people, break up your routine, and give back a little to the community. We occasionally do volunteer performances for local charities, churches, and programs. Come and check us out and join in the fun! We look forward to seeing you there - Just drop on by! When?

What we're about

You are improvising every day of your life.
Experience the joy of improv!

The purpose of our Improv Comedians group is to introduce free family friendly weekly improv comedy workshops through the Monkey Butler improv comedy co-sponsored organization, and invite other improv comedy groups to collaborate with the Monkey Butler organization.

Why learn improv comedy? "Your life is not scripted. You are improvising every day of your life." says Monkey Butler improv coach Tom Grimmer. As Improv Comedians' co-organizer, I believe improv comedy guides us to experience the joy of improv! "Your life is not scripted. You are improvising every day of your life." Fran Rew, co-organizer of Improv Comedians, believes that the lessons of improv comedy are exercises in experiencing the joy of improv, in our everyday lives.

So who should join us? Everyone, of all ages!

For the summer of 2018, Monkey Butler's free weekly Thursday night workshops will be located in downtown Denver, on the west boundary of the Platt River, at 3455 West Ringsby Court, Suite 102, Denver, CO 80216.
