UCB Theater found Ian Roberts says that the best compliment you can get after an improv show is an audience member not believing it wasn’t written and rehearsed.  This workshop will focus on helping you get better at finding and playing a strong, clear, comedic idea with your partner the way it would exist in a great sketch or a sitcom character.


The First Three Lines
3pm-5pm. Sun. 5/8
ColdTowne Conservatory (6929 Airport Blvd., Suite #131, Austin, TX 78752)

The first three lines are the most important moment in any scene.  They are the difference between scenes that feel fun and easy and ones that feel like you’re stuck in comedy hell. This workshop we’ll use exercises and scene work to focus on slowing down that first moment to avoid common roadblocks and find the Game of the Scene quickly and easily.
