Go Comedy Resident Artist James Quesada is moving to NYC in June -- don't miss this last opportunity to take his fantastic workshop:
THE ABSURDITY OF IMPROV | Tuesday, May 23 | 7-10PM | $30
Improv is absurd. The challenge is to correctly pretend to be someone else while accurately engaging with the environment that isn't there. It can become a very serious business. Don't let it! In this workshop we'll charge ourselves with impossible tasks and play in scenes full of booby traps. Together we'll destroy our expectations of getting it right and rediscover the fun in The Absurdity of Improv.
Guest Workshop: Mona Thompson & Shara Tonn
Clowning | Tuesday, June 20 | 7-9PM | $40
The art of clowning is all about using your entire body to convey meaning. If you are an improviser who feels disconnected from your body, this workshop will teach you ways to bridge that gap in your performance.
