Improv & Comedy


Sketch comedy institution, home of the Groundlings performing troupe, offers improvisation classes taught by Groundlings and alumni in a safe, structured, and supportive atmosphere. Students with previous acting or improv experience are recommended to audition for Basic, the first level of the core program which teaches the fundamentals of the Groundlings’ style of character-based improv. Intro workshops for beginners are also offered that do not require an audition. See website for audition and class details.
