This is a writing and performance class focused on creating original characters.

This class will use the concept of the "Game" so a background in other UCB classes is important.  Students will be taught different strategies for coming up with characters. By the end of class students will have developed multiple characters culminating in a class show where they will perform one 3-5 minute character monologue.

Please note: Students will be expected to write and prepare characters outside of class each week.

Maximum class size is 12


NOTE: You do not need to be approved for Advanced Study Improv. Successful completion of Improv 401 is the pre-requisite for this course.
