While improvisation is “making it up on the spot,” it is not chaos. This comedy improv class teaches structure, techniques and formulas that you can depend on.
Students learn to perform short form improvisational comedy and graduate by presenting a live 45 minute variety show consisting of games and skits similar to the television shows “Whose Line Is It, Anyway”, “Thank God you’re here” and “Second City TV”. The class is designed for beginner to intermediate and guarantees that virtually anyone can learn the skills to be funny.
18 rehearsal classes are held over 10-11 weeks, Monday and Friday evenings from 7:30 to 10:pm at Elmwood Playhouse, 10 Park St, Nyack NY 10960. You must enjoy comedy, satire, sarcasm and a bit of the absurd while engaging your sense of play with others. Acting experience is beneficial but not essential.
Auditions are casual. I’ll have you do beginner’s ‘Improv’ exercises, to see if this is for you (your take and mine.) This class is FREE, but you MUST commit to attending the rehearsal classes. Each class is a building block for the next.
Larry Marino has perfected a no-fail method of teaching comedy improvisation for actors, teachers, business leaders, retirees and just about anyone who wants to have fun. For over 10 years, Larry’s short-form comedy improvisation classes have been a hit with audiences at Elmwood Playhouse in Nyack. Participants love the classes and look forward to rehearsals. Graduates have gone on to stand up comedy performances at Levity Live, NY comedy clubs, TV commercials and talking their way out of speeding tickets.
