DESCRIPTION

IMPROV

"Drop in for one class, just one. You’ll thank me.”
WILLIAM O.
   
"Training with Sean is like taking a MASTER CLASS in comedic acting."
Parrish S.
   
The class’s interactive exercises build listening and communication skills, heighten awareness and teach you how to be more playful, spontaneous and flexible. Play short form improv games in a fun and safe environment. (Class size limited)  Ages 18+.  Dress comfortable and be prepared for movement. We are not concerned with matching shirts, “levels”, up-selling classes or the like.  It is our belief that “levels” give people a false sense of ability and skill.  Here you will not “audition” to be in the troupe or performances.  People are selected when they have displayed the skill and knowledge.  In other words, we select performers based on ability!
Ages: Adults 18+

"He sees angles of humor and wit immediately, consistently having several excellent options for any scenario at hand.  I have had the pleasure of taking his improv classes, which are not only extremely FUN, they have provided me with invaluable lessons and steady growth.  Every class I have attended has allowed me to increase my own abilities, both personal and on the stage."
Shawn M.
   

STANDUP

Nowadays, it’s not just enough to take or offer a “stand-up comedy class” to compete in today’s market, you need to be a well rounded performer.  Not just a joke teller.  And unfortunately, most if not all stand-up comedy classes offer simply “the mechanics”.  Set up, punch and twist.
THIS class will go beyond that.  You will learn the Mechanics, but also Improv, Hosting, How to Handle Hecklers, Story-Telling, Act-outs, Characters and more.  Everything you will need to become a truly well rounded performer.  Not simply a mechanical joke robot.  This class will step out of the comedy teachings of the 1980’s and bring you up to date with how comedy works NOW.

"If you want to be ANY type of performer - actor, standup, improv training with Sean is THE only way to go."
Rick R.

HOSTING

The nuts and bolts of being a good host and emcee!
A great emcee is able to unite a group of strangers into one cohesive audience. An emcee doesn’t have to be over the top, but they should have energy, enthusiasm and instill confidence in the audience. Again, just like the ringmaster builds suspense and enthusiasm, an emcee makes the show build to a finale.  No other class like it!

TEAM BUILDING
WORKSHOP

Over the course of 90 – 120 minutes, our instructors will teach your group basic improv comedy skills and team building techniques. (If you’re totally out of the loop, improv comedy is what you see on “Whose Line Is It Anyway?”) It’s a lot of fun — and it also helps the group figure out new ways to communicate and work together collaboratively. The principles of improv can be applied to a number of everyday business and organizational challenges. Learning them can foster creativity, leadership, teamwork and respect.
We have teachers available to work with groups of all sizes. Workshops can be held at The Comedy Spot, or the teachers can come to you. This is the kind of event that will have the office talking for weeks — contact us and tell us about your group and get a price quote.
