Longform Improv Workshop

Tuesday 21st November 8pm - 10pm
  1. × £8 Standard
  2. × £6 Concession

The Bristol Longform Improv Workshop 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 current drop-in theme is Game Of The Scene, and this workshop is focused on framing the unusual thing.

When something weird happens in a scene we need to react to it, the reaction 'frames' the thing and lets everyone know it is unusual in the context of the scene.

We'll work on how to frame and label these unusual things, as well as building a game out of it.

These sessions are open to all, but prior scenework experience and some knowledge of non-narrative longform is recommended.

Supplementary readings and videos are added weekly to the group Facebook page to support the workshops.
