Longform Improv Workshop

Tuesday 13th February 8pm - 10pm

This event is now over. Check the What's On for upcoming events!

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 drop-ins are currently focusing on Truth and this workshop is looking at Faking It. We can't be completely truthful in scenes, sometimes we have to play professions/scenarios that we have absolutely no experience of.

This drop-in will work on how to play these scenes as confidently and truthfully as possible.

These sessions are OPEN TO ALL, but prior scenework experience and some knowledge of non-narrative longform is recommended.


John McInnes is a stand-up comedian, writer and improviser. He is a member of the University of Bristol's Improv Society, as well as the Unscripted Players.

He is also a frequent guest performer at Glasgow's Harold Night and last year appeared in "Our Street", an Unscripted Players production at the Wardrobe Theatre.
