“Coldtowne classes made me a better performer, a more honest human being, and more confident in every aspect of my life.” – Jessica Hamilton, ColdTowne Improv Graduate
Improv builds confidence, improves public speaking, increases spontaneity, fosters creativity, and — most importantly — is fun. Whether you’re interested in a career in comedy or just looking for something wildly entertaining to do with your free time, our classes can help.
The ColdTowne Conservatory teaches long-form improv comedy in Austin. Our classes are based on the improv theories developed by Del Close, who trained such comedy luminaries as John Belushi, Bill Murray, Chris Farley, Tina Fey, the Upright Citizens Brigade, and countless others.
ColdTowne classes are fun, relaxed, and open to people of all backgrounds. It doesn’t matter if you have any prior performance experience — the ColdTowne Conservatory will take care of you.
Instructors at the ColdTowne Conservatory have trained, performed, or taught at Improv Olympic, Second City, The Annoyance Theater, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, and The Comedy Conservatory in New Orleans, as well as at festivals around the country.
Class tuition is $225 for an eight-week course and includes free admission to ALL shows at the ColdTowne Theater. Referral discounts and internships are available.
We guarantee you will have fun in your Level 1 classes. If you don’t, just let us know within 30 days and we will refund your money with no questions asked.
