  • 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'...

  • Improvisation Level 3 - Moving On
    Monday
    Nov 5
    In this class, we move away from the safety of preset games into the freeing world of open scenes. We find out how to create, steer and end scenes with and without structure. Using characters to drive the scene and to go beyond the scene to create a story, a theme or a world (this is what we call longform).
    You must have taken Levels 1 and 2 with easylaughs to take Level 3.
    Note: This class breaks for the holidays.
    The last class in 2018 is 17 Dec.
    The first (and only) class in 2019 is 07 Jan.

  • Longform Improvisation
    Saturday
    Nov 17
    This 8 week class is for students who want to move beyond short-form scenes and tell a longer story. We'll look at some well known long form structures, celebrate them, then rip them to pieces and make up some new ones. We'll be looking at stringing scenes together to form longer narratives, transitions and editing, how to use and abuse long form structure, and how to work with your fellow players to create a whole long form piece.

    We recommend that you have completed Level 3 with easylaughs or equivalent experience. If you are not sure, feel free to contact Ben to discuss your suitability for this course.
    Day and time:
    Saturday 13:00 - 17.00
