In this workshop we will work on using openings to their full potential.

A big concept in the US improv scene, particularly New York, is using openings to help generate ideas for the show.

This class will be taking each opening and learning how to “Use the whole buffalo” so that none of our funny ideas go to waste. These help us explore the suggestion fully and fully utilize it to make every show unique.
