About these classes:

The best place to start learning improvised comedy. Here, we’ll learn how to be spontaneous, trust and listen to one another, and perform confidently under conditions of uncertainty. This is where we’ll learn how having fun and being radically excellent with one another can make funny happen.

This is a great course for anyone looking to jump in to improvised comedy – whether you want to perform, just learn new skills, or brush up on old ones.

Classes are taught Wednesday evenings 6:30-8:00pm at Colosoul (241 Hay St., Subiaco, Opposite The Vic). The course spans eight weeks, from the 19th of September until the 7th of November.

 

FAQ:

Whoa! That's a big commitment. Can I try Improv out first?

Yes! We're running a free workshop the Friday before classes start (14th September) so you can figure out whether or not Improv is for you (spoiler: It probably is...). More information is available on our "What's On?" page. Additionally, provided we don't pre-sell all available class spaces, you also have the option to purchase the first session for $25 cash each before committing to the full term, and if you do commit for the full term we'll deduct this from the price.

I've done Level 1 with Only the Human before. Is there value in doing this again?

We've changed up the curriculum significantly this year, following on from our lead educator's experience studying improvisation at the iO Theatre in Chicago. Even if you've completed Level 1 with Only the Human before, we think this course will be a really worthwhile dive in to Chicago-style long-form improvisation.

Why should I do Improv over pottery making, Netflix binging, or macrame?

We think all those things are great. It's peak TV! However, Improv is a uniquely social experience and a great opportunity to make new friends and push your boundaries. People far smarter than us have written about how improv is great for improving workplace skillsreducing anxiety, and even democracy. George Bernard Shaw quipped that that ‘All progress depends on the unreasonable person.' We're inclined to agree.
