INTRODUCTION TO IMPROV COMEDY WORKSHOP
Saturday 2 July, 2.00pm–4.30pm
Do your friends find you funny? Are you always the most interesting person at parties? Are you a confident and gregarious public speaker? No? Great! You’re a born improviser! Come embrace the comedic art form which embraces you just as you are. Learn to trust in your own ideas, and the ideas of others to build something interesting, beautiful and, best of all, hilarious! The trick to improv? What you’ve got is already enough. (Funny, interesting and confident people are also welcome but you have come warts and all.)
DINNER AND A MOVIE
With the explosion of casual dating apps such as Tinder, Grindr, and Cuddlr it’s never been easier to have a terrible date, which is the perfect fodder for the comedy show “Dinner and a Movie” hosted by improv comedy team Genre Claude Van Damme. Members of the audience will share their best worst dating stories, which the improvisers then use as inspiration for their sketches. It’s a combination of comedy and catharsis.
In the second half of the show, Genre Claude Van Damme improvise a full movie live on stage—complete with dramatic camera angles, tense editing,high flying action sequences and tender denouements.
