SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: A Good Straightman Says No Once with Brandon Gardner


This workshop will focus on the unsung hero of improv: The straightman.  How can you point out your partner's absurd behavior while at the same time setting them up for more of it?  How can you frame what's funny for the audience by reacting to it truthfully while at the same time helping to justify it?  In this workshop we'll explore what it means to say "a good straightman says no once, then finds a way to say yes."


PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE NO REFUNDS FOR THESE DCM WORKSHOPS. READ THE POLICY CAREFULLY BEFORE REGISTERING AND ENROLLING

Maximum class size is 16.

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll.  The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $50.
