Buckle up, because this July, we’re bringing back the wild ride that is Sketch-Prov.
Sketch-prov is what happens when you combine the two comedic forms of sketch (written-out, rehearsed scenes) and improvisation (flying by the seat of your pants with nothing but an audience suggestion).
This particular class, taught by the insanely talented Tim Short, will focus on taking the skills learned through improv, such as heightening, scene building, and timing, and gearing them toward writing and building comedic sketch scenes.
Looking for a good reason to branch out into something new like sketch? Tim says, “Pivoting your skills into a different form of comedy from improv — to sketch, standup, or storytelling — always adds new facets to your performance life, and will make you a better performer overall.”
Intro to Sketch-Prov begins on July 1st. Classes will be Sundays from 11am – 1pm. Registration is open now!Register Now!
