Improv NOW! - Friday Performance Opportunity (aka Jam) (FREE)
If you're interested in getting on a stage in a low pressure environment to try some improv, this jam is for you! I have reserved space at the basement stage of the Triple Crown Ale House. We will likely to do some warmups, 2-person scenes, and then do some short sets with other more veteran improvisers. Participate as much or as little as you would like. Or simply come and watch! All who attend will get to do 2-person scenes and a bigger jam set at the end! This is the most low pressure fun performance opportunity out there - perfect for all! If you're think you're ready, you're ready! All scenes will be inspired by a suggestion of a random word from the audience. I've also invited improvisers from the NYC improv community to attend as well. So you may get to play with some veteran improvisers as well. ---- This jam will start at 6pm and end at 7pm. There usually will be a warm-up at 5:45pm. There is a free improv show afterwards from 7pm-8pm, so you can also see how more experienced improvisers perform. ---- Please, no outside food or water of any kind, including water bottles. The Triple Crown offers food and drink discounts for those with this improv show. They offer 10% off food, and $5 select draft beers.

What we're about

This group offers weekly improv classes & performance opportunities appropriate for all levels, even those with zero experience.

-- Are you a bit shy and looking to get more comfortable with your public speaking?

-- Are you a working professional hoping to be a bit more spontaneous during your meetings and interactions with co-workers?

-- Or are you an actor or improv comedian looking to take your craft to the next level?

Then this is the group for you!

In the weekly class I offer, you will learn the fundamentals of scene work (role playing) and work through various exercises designed to help make your scene work more successful. You'll be on your feet quite a bit as I'm believer that you learn (and have more fun) through doing rather than hearing an instructor talk. Brief individual notes will be given, if that's what you're looking for, and tailored to your level of experience. At the end of each class, I'm confident you'll feel a sense of accomplishment that will leave you more energized and excited to tackle the challenges of everyday life, whether at your work place or in your personal life.

In the weekly jams which are always free, you will have an opportunity to try improv on a stage in a low pressure supportive environment.

There are also free comedy shows in which I invite established improv groups and sometimes other comics. One way to learn improv is also to watch other more experienced groups do improv, which can give you inspiration.

If these are elements you would look for, this group may be worth a try. Alternately, if you know of anyone who is looking for an affordable but satisfying improv experience - beginner or otherwise, please send them my way.

Hope to see you there,

Steve
