Adult Improv Comedy Classes, Level One (FALL Quarter, 2018)

Improv is an art form that provides structure, exercises and teamwork to help individuals grow their confidence, work better together, and most importantly, feel perfectly at home in their own skin.

In Hashtag Comedy's Level One six week improv class, students will: 

  • Learn the power of YES!
  • Explore the concept of "embracing their weird"
  • Develop confidence and stage presence (that translates far beyond the stage)
  • Study and learn improv concepts, theories and games
  • Discover how to connect with themselves and others with greater authenticity and ease

If you want to take these principles and become an improv comedian...great! Hashtag Comedy's classes will support you in beginning (or continuing) your comedy journey.

If not, that's great, too! Students of all levels, ages and occupations are welcome. Improv is a foundational life skill that sticks with you long after you've left the classroom or stage. In fact, it can make you a better boss, parent, co-worker, friend and human. 

***Classes run for six weeks on Saturdays beginning 9/15 from 10am-12pm.*** A final showcase will be held after class ends at Up Front at Shadowbox Live on 10/25 at 8pm.
