Have you ever wanted to give an improv comedy a try?  Then join us for a 2-hour workshop designed to give you a sample of what you would be learning in a full improv class.  We will go over the basics to give you an idea of what you can expect from a full course.  You will find that improv isn’t just for performers – the skills learned can be applied to your everyday life – whether it be public speaking, listening skills, or being more comfortable with risk-taking; improv is for everyone.

Presented by The Providence Improv Guild
