The Kitchen Rules Longform Drop-In is a weekly drop-in for improvisers who are interested in American-style longform comedic improvisation.
Workshops feature a heavy emphasis on scenework fundamentals and establishing truthful, grounded characters with fun comedic patterns.
Our drop-ins are currently focusing on the core fundamental skills of longform. This workshop will cover a key principal of longform – supporting your scene partners.
Some of the most important aspects of longform such as "yes-and" are simply derived the idea of supporting your scene partner in anyway that you can. Longform is not about individuals attempting to be funny by themselves, it is an ensemble activity.
This workshop will highlight how to support your scene partner in a way that feels honest and truthful.
These sessions are OPEN TO ALL, but prior scenework experience is recommended.
