Character Creation & You Are Enough - 2 Day Improv Intensive Workshop with Matt Folliott and Stacey McGunnigle!
DAY 1 - Character Creation with Matt Folliott
As improvisers creating comedy in the moment can become less challenging and more fun when we filter everything we do through the eyes, ears, and point of view of a character. Character Creation will push you to create memorable, sustainable, character choices. Using unique and traditional methods we'll show you how to summon larger than life characters as well as more subtle, nuanced weirdos.
DAY 2 - You Are Enough with Stacey McGunnigle
There is nothing more important that connecting with your audience. When an audience sees themselves reflected in your performance, they walk away feeling like they know you. And that makes you unforgettable. In this intensive workshop you will learn that you are enough. Your life, your stories, your point of view is ample breeding ground for incredible characters and scene work. Making choices that are personal, relatable, and above all else truthful. Learn how to you bring yourself to not only your improv but your audience.
Must have a minimum of 1 year of improv experience, the equivalent of A-E improvisation levels at Second City. If you have questions please send Matt a private message. Some exceptions will be made.
