On this advanced course, you will learn the structure and techniques required to play this seminal long form. Created at IO Chicago in the early 80's, this form has influenced a huge amount of modern long form improv.

This course will be technical, but hugely fun and rewarding too. Upon completing this course, you will be eligable to be selected for the Dogface Harold house team which rehearses and performs regularly, currently over zoom.

This course is suitable for people who have at leat a year's experience of long form improv, if you're unsure if this course is for you feel free to ask -

Your coach will be Chris Read. Chris is a warm and supportive coach who has been improvising for 10 years, has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and trained + performed across the UK and at iO Chicago.

Improv is a load of fun, and anyone can do it! Great for building confidence, wellbeing and for being an outlet for play + creativity. We create safe and supportive enviroments in our classes, and they're run by experienced improv coaches.

We are delighted to offer all our courses in partnership with the wonderful Slow Theatre Company

What is Improv?

Improv is a form of performance - often comedic, but also dramatic, where everything is made up on the spot. There are no scripts, just collaboration techniques and tools that allow us to build worlds from nothing at all. People often know improv from the TV show "Whose line is anyway?" - but this is just the tip of the iceberg! The possibilties are endless and anyone can do it.
