Advanced Short-form improv workshop with Taylor Bruneaux
Shortform improv is, by some, thought of as the kid brother of long-form improv. No longer! Popularized by shows like Whose Line and Wild 'n Out, shortform improv provides a language and skill set for all improvised performance. In this workshop, you’ll learn half a dozen stage-ready shortform games, as well as advanced improv skills like finding the comedic angle, connecting with the audience, finding the scene within the game, and when to make and break the rules. After this crash course, you’ll be comfortable performing shortform games on stage and using these shortform skills to make your longform scenes snappier and stronger.
