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).
*** NOTE: THIS IS AN ENTIRELY ONLINE CLASS. FOR A LIMITED TIME THIS CLASS CAN REPLACE IMPROV 201.
You would be able to sign up for Improv 301 when the Training Center reopens.

Doug Moe, teacher
I'm an actor, writer and comedian living in Brooklyn, New York, the epicenter of the artisanal mustache renaissance.
My book "Man Vs Child: One Dad's Guide to the Weirdness of Parenting" was named one of Amazon's "Best Humor Books of 2017" It's a funny dad book for parents worried about messing up their kids.
“Doug Moe has written a delightful and helpful book that gives real advice about the Wild West world of raising children.” - Amy Poehler
“Moe describes the awed affection new fathers may have for their children with relatable humor and genuine insight, offering a promising resource for the curious and the clueless.” - The New Yorker
I’m the co-author of two books for D.L. Hughley: “Surrender, White People!: Our Unconditional Terms for Peace” and the New York Times Bestseller “How Not to Get Shot: And Other Advice From White People” (“A satirical but apt addition to the culture’s fraught conversation about race.” - New York Times Book Review).
I've been a longtime performer and instructor at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. On TV, you've maybe seen me in "Inside Amy Schumer," "30 Rock" or "Difficult People," among other places.
I write funny things besides my book. I write a featured Tumblr blog about being a dad at www.manvchild.com I tweet at @dougmoe. I've written for McSweeney's, Funny or Die, Gawker and others.
