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 at the top of your intelligence. 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. You don’t have to be a comedian! Improv is personal skills, professional skills, and funny skills all wrapped up in one.

At the end of the term you’ll even have an opportunity to perform with your newly-formed troupe!

This term the classes will be taught by improvisers with international experience.

Only the Human places a high value on community, diversity and inclusion. We endeavour to create a safe space where people can explore comedy without fear of oppression or discrimination. Women, people of colour, non-binary, disabled and other folk are highly encouraged to take our classes.

The details:

Dates: Classes run every Wednesday for 8 weeks. We’ll start in early May (exact date TBA).
Times: Classes run for 2 hours, from 7:00 - 9:00pm.
Where: TBA.

 

FAQ:

Whoa, that’s a big commitment! Can I try Improv first?

Yes! There are a few ways you can dip your toe in to the Improv ocean before plunging in. Check out our What’s On page for upcoming shows, which often provide a chance to do a drop-in performance - no prior experience required!

We also offer a limited number of trial places which are released the weekend before the first class. A trial space allows you to come to the first class for $25, and if you continue with the whole term this will be deducted from the total value of the course. Trial availability is subject to demand and availability. If you’re interested in registering for a trial space, e-mail us and we’ll put you down!

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.

Do I have to commit to a full term?

We do ask for those
