Having discovered improvisation around 10 years ago it has given me the opportunity to harness and hone my superpowers that are part of my unique neurodivergent brain.

 

It enabled me to be spontaneous, creative and impulsive within the safety of a structure that helped me feel safe and supported.

I developed a confidence that I never knew possible and found I could cope with ‘not knowing’ what was coming next.

My everyday life was affected; I would ‘say yes’ more, listen more and commit more.

 

Having fun is one of my values and what could be more fun than creating comedic scenes ‘in the moment’ with no preplanning or practice needed.

Having delivered workshops to numerous adults and children, I have seen the joy and exhilaration that improv brings time and again.

How would you like to learn to create short comedy scenes 'in the moment' with a small group ( of like minded people?

You will be gently guided through the golden rules of improv and given the opportunity to build your skills at your own pace.

From session 1 you will be improvising short scenes with others based on suggestions from the rest of the group.

'But what if I am not funny?' Some people worry about this and the answer is simple.

You don't have to 'try' to be funny as the comedy is created in the moment based on what you and your scene partner are saying to each other.

The fact that no one really knows what is going on makes it naturally funny. I guarantee it

Be warned though because improv can create the following side effects:

- increased confidence

- the desire to experience more fun in life

- new friends

- increased agile thinking abilities

- the need to improvise in everyday life (your friends & family might ask what has happened to you)!
