  • push yourself out of your comfort zone
  • surprise yourself, at least twice, by what you're capable of
  • hone your presentation skills
  • feel embarassed and self-conscious, then get over it
  • begin to notice your patterns, triggers and default responses
  • improve your posture
  • improve your voice
  • align your voice with your posture
  • perform live in front of a real audience on the easylaughs main stage
  • feel pretty cool that you did it
And yes, you'll have fun too :)
PLUS all students get free entry to all easylaughs shows while their class is running - so that's your Fridays sorted as well!
Most students who take a level 1 class go on to sign up for level 2. Just sayin'...

  • "impro has changed my life. I love it and feel so excited to learn, learn, learn more of this amazing craft. Yeah, I could rant like a maniac....it's the best."

    Alice
  • "I think it's great that the students get to watch the Crea shows for free, get involved in Powerball and perform a graduation show. I am now hooked on improv. The only downside is that "normal" life seems a bit dull!"

    Anonymous
  • "...the classes were good because they taught me to sometimes let go, and not always be in control, and not fear that. Which was actually a pretty big thing to discover and learn."

    Doris
  • "The class was great - both my instructor and classmates!"

    David

    Julia
  • "It helped me gain skills that are useful on stage but also in my everyday life. And Ben is awesome!"

    Raffaella
  • "I always felt alive when going home after the class -- even if I came there following a long day at work."

    Mihnea
  • "Luke, you are a great and inspiring teacher! I love how you capture the essence of every scene and reflect on it, especially by playing it out in other ways to make your point. Thanks a lot!"

    Florian
  • "The post-show high is better than sex, drugs and more contemporary than rock and roll. And I have tried all three at least once."
