Our Improv Comedy Program teaches you the essence of the art of comedy in a way that will make your scenework explode. We teach the Harold, an improv format that teaches the keys to creating great comedy and helps you learn and perform amazing improv shows. We are the only training centre in the country that specializes in teaching this style of improv. You’ll love it.
If you have never taken an improv class before, our approach breaks it down to its simplest, most practical elements that allow you to perform interesting, emotionally charged improv scenes from Day One. After that, you we will push you to get better and make more interesting choices.
If you have taken an improv class before and/or are an experienced improviser, our approach is completely different than any other style of improv currently being taught in Canada, anywhere. Many experienced improvisers who have finished two years of training at other training centres claim to have not felt as though they really started to learn about the depths of improvisation until they began studying with us. Their words.
Many famous comedians have studied and performed Harold and attribute their success to longform improv. Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jason Sudeikis, Bobby Moynihan, Jordan Peele, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Tim Meadows, Horatio Sanz, Rachel Dratch, Stephanie Weir, and many, many others.
Our improv comedy classes and workshops are designed for adults and recommended for persons 18 or older, however, some exceptions may be made. This is a listing of our current course offerings, upcoming classes and availability.
