Longform Improv Workshop

Tuesday 25th April 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.

Individual workshops will cover a wide range of longform skills, as well as sessions dedicated to exploring non-narrative formats such as The Harold, The Deconstruction, The Pretty Little Flower, and much more!

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

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


John Gallagher began performing as part of Aberystwyth University's Improv Society.

He went on to teach Improv as a tutor at the University, and has since coached and directed a number of teams in preparation for their Edinburgh Fringe shows.

He is currently touring his solo improv show, One Board Man.
