Scheduled
Sundays 3:15-6:15pm
Start Date

Price

The UCB Training Center teaches quality comedic scenes focus on one central comedic idea: referred to as "The Game" of the scene.

Students will be taught: 1) identifying "games," 2) heightening - finding new ways to make your scenes get funnier from start to finish, 3) realizing how patterns support the "game," 4) second beats (returning to scenes later in a piece).

This course meets for 8 sessions that are each 3 hours long.

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

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

Admission to 301 after the completion of this course is not guaranteed. Students will be judged on their application of concepts that they have learned in Improv 101 & 201. The Training Center will send placement notification to students within 10 days of the Improv 201 graduation performance. Students may not enroll in Improv 301 before receiving this notification.

Class Size: 16 Students


Class does not meet Aug 31

John Timothy, Teacher

John is a member of the UCB Harold Team Namaste and a writer/director for the UCB Beta Team Horse + Horse. Past work at the UCB includes the Harold teams Sandino and A Sparrow. He has trained at the UCB since 2006 with the likes of Betsy Stover, Neil Casey, Doug Moe, Porter Mason, Dyna Moe, Jeff Hiller, Jordan Klepper, and Will Hines. A graduate of Amherst College, he spent his most formative years fighting frostbite and getting tear gassed every time the Red Sox won the World Series.

John's favorite UCB moment was probably the time he was playing Hurley in The Dharma Initiative Company Picnic and almost choked to death on his wig.
