This course introduces students to the long form improvisation structure known as "The Harold," developed by Del Close.

"The Harold" is a series of scenes inspired by a single suggestion that fit together into one cohesive half hour piece. Students learn how to 1) perform openings, 2) create scenes inspired by an opening 3) perform "group games," 4) second and third beats (returning to scenes later in the piece).

Course meets for 8 sessions, each 3 hours long.

Students will take part in a class performance, generally held at the UCB Theatre.

Students required to see at least 2 improvised shows at the UCB Theater before the end of the course.

Class Size: 16 Students

Frank Garcia Hejl, Teacher

Frank Hejl is a writer and actor on the sketch team Onassis [onassiscomedy.tumblr.com], winner of the 2011 Friars Club Improv and Sketch Competition, and a performer on the UCB house team Bucky. He has studied and performed at UCBT since 2007 and has written and appeared in material for MTV, Comedy Central, IFC and G4. He is probably most recognized as the voice of Seth Rogen in the online "Her" parody "Him", as Orson Welles in the web series Rejected Pitches and as Bob in the Bildebergers' infamous and NSFW web sketch "Bob's Workshop". His favorite film of all time is a tie between Ghostbusters and Gremlins. Seriously.
