“It’s Not About Being Funny, So Stop Trying!” with Nick Armstrong

In this workshop improvisers delve into character and well-grounded scenes focusing on the situation being funny and not the improvisers shelling out one liners and jokes. You’ll learn to trust that the characters and work you’re doing is good enough and not relying on punch lines and call outs.

“Just the Facts: Advanced Scenework Fundamentals” with Dave Hill
