Advanced Improv Skills: The Game of the Scene

September 23, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Learn how to play with anyone and find the fuel to drive your scene work to the next comedic level!

In this five-week, advanced skills class, students will learn all about Game of the Scene, the long-form improv tool that originated in Chicago at IO and was perfected by some of the most legendary teams out there, including the Upright Citizens Brigade. This class will be an in-depth breakdown of everything Game related and provide students with the tools to find longevity in their scenes, identify the unusual, define comedic patterns, and heighten the fun and playfulness of their scene work! This class includes a showcase. The prerequisite for this class is Level Four Improv at Stomping Ground or equivalent training with permission from the Training Center Director.

This course will focus on:

  • Identifying game in any scene organically
  • Initiating Game directly pulled from premise
  • Delving deep into “if this is true, what else is true?”
  • Understanding the true comedic power of patterns
  • Strengthening character work by utilizing the fuel in character game play
