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 one of the most overlooked aspects of improv – commitment.
It can be tremendously difficult to be truthfully committed in a comedic scene. The specifics of the scene can be so absurd that it's hard to execute the physicality required, and more simply; it can be tough to act serious when the scene is funny.
This workshop will cover commitment in comedic improv scenes and demonstrate how even just commitment can be a game itself.
These sessions are OPEN TO ALL, but prior scenework experience is recommended.
