Jimmy Carrane Improv Workshops in Honolulu!

We are excited to welcome the one and only Jimmy Carrane aka THE IMPROV NERD to Honolulu. Jimmy is a highly recommended improv instructor who is best known for his improv podcast, “The Improv Nerd”.

What will the workshop cover?
From Jimmy: We will focus on the art of slow comedy method of improv – learning to play things real, bringing emotion to our scenes, not worrying about being funny, letting it come to you. This means Working organically off your partner and finding everything we need there. That is the foundation. From there, we’ll focus on doing quality two-person scenes and some simple long forms that will support the art of slow comedy method. Of course, we’ll adjust based on what the class specifically tells me what they need in the moment since I’m improvising along with them to discover what we need to learn.
