Improv Jam

Ages: 18+
Improv comedy is a fun and life changing performance art form that will help you grow in self-confidence as you discover your inner funny and learn that you can handle anything life throws at you!  Each week Improv Jam reviews one of Grant Garrison’s 12 Fundamentals of Improv Comedy, and each workshop concludes by learning at least two short form improv performance games.  Although the lessons progressively build each week, it is offered in a drop-in format which allows new students to join us every single week.  Students who attend the final workshop on Dec. 7 will be able to perform in an improv comedy show immediately following the conclusion of the workshop.  All experience levels are welcome!
Grant Garrison is a graduate of the prestigious Second City Conservatory for Improv Actors in Chicago with over 12 years of teaching and performance experience.
