Comedy Class Survival Guide

Walter’s #1 Rule: HAVE FUN but never at another’s expense. There are no mistakes in Improv, so you have nothing to fear. Let go of ego and insecurity. Suspend judgement of self and others. Improv is all about team. 

Improv #1 Rule: “YES! AND…” We say yes to everyone and everything – the only exception is personal safety – we do not allow others to cause physical, mental or emotional harm to us. Improv requires we beyond respect each other. We focus on making our team mates looks great. We accept all for who they are, what they wear, the words they say etc. We are inspired by our scene partners, and in turn we offer big choices to inspire them in return. A scene becomes a simple give and take of choices built upon the foundation of previous choices. 

LISTENING – Listening is the #1 skill in life – but especially in acting, singing, comedy, directing…. Even painting. 

FOCUS – Focus will save your life in the theater. A lot of what we do is less structured that most jobs. But if we do not focus and stay present / aware, we can hurt ourselves and others. 

MAKE BIG MISTAKES – well, not on purpose. This philosophy is all about not fearing failure. More so, never worry about those little mistakes. Take chances! Play at your 100% best at all times. If you make a mistake, LEARN FROM IT. If someone else makes a mistake, LEARN FROM IT. Let go of that horrible feeling. The world is not ending. Don’t make yourself or others feel bad for simple “OPPS” moments. (Leaving this typo in to make a point LOL). Recover quickly and push forward.

NEVER MAKE THE FACE –  When I was 5, my piano teacher said, never stop and never make the face. If you don’t tell us you messed up, we never know (except your teacher and mom – can’t help you there lol)

Journal: Everything you need to succeed as a comedian is all around you. Keeping a journal allows you to track your observations and experiences. We create our own comedy text book. Observe our world. Record it. Record what you learn in comedy class – new games, stand-up ideas etc. Write about the good, the bad and the ugly. Journals help us process a very subjective world. Having some stage fright, write about it. 

teen-comedy-night-nyc

Click here for tickets!!! $20 includes off Broadway Improv Comedy Show by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH plus soft drink and popcorn or hot dog. (Regularly priced $20 plus two drink minimum)

DAILY HOMEWORK

START EVERY DAY WITH A SMILE Enter a room with a smile and get many more in return. Don’t wait for the world to make you happy. Lead by example!

OBSERVE YOUR WORLD – EVERYTHING you need to do/know for  Improv and Stand-Up Comedy is all around. Reporters report. Artist interpret. Record what you see in your journal.

STAND-UP COMEDY 101

Treat every class the way a comic treats an open mic. Open mics are where young comics hone their craft. We try new bits. We often fail miserably. We get up and try again. We get to hear the words we wrote. We flesh out our stories. 

WHERE TO START? Simply brainstorm a list of things. Don’t edit. We are not trying to create the end product. We are simply vomiting ideas onto paper. What makes you mad? What makes you sad? What makes you laugh? What have you observed or experienced at school, home, work, vacation, in public places etc? Simply list a bunch of ideas. List about 10 different ideas. 

Now just get on stage and start reading the list. Maybe start to tell us the story of what happened. Keep talking until you get the light (The universal comedy symbol for it’s time to get off stage). Finish the bit and go. 

IMMEDIATELY open your journal and write – How did that go? What got a laugh? What got crickets (Dad Silence)? Now we start to edit our material a bit down to the best 3-4.

NOW we brainstorm details. For a story, think WHO WHERE WHAT. Characters? Setting? What Happened? Consider the five senses. What did you see, hear, smell, taste, touch? 

Get back on stage and try out the best bits form last time with new detail. Then go back to the journal. How can we make this funnier?

ALL SIDES – try looking at your topics from all angles, different perspectives. 

The Magic Three – Just like three points make a plane (geometry) or ELA teacher says to make three arguments to support a thesis in a book report, comedy likes the rhythm of three. What is over all theme? You need at least three points to support that theme, right? We can combine stories – take things from multiple events to form ONE CRAZY AMAZING STORY. 

THE Nth DEGREE – Something happened. What worse COULD have happened? What could you have said? What could you have done better? What could you have done to make it worse? 

Analogies – What is your story similar to? Finding similarities in seemingly different can be hilarious. 

Heighten the Attitude – raise the intensity of the emotion driving this bit. 

IMPROVISE! The reason comics use Open Mics to develop material is the audience. Respond in real time to your audience reactions. Listen! Comedy audiences are brutally honest. They let you know when something is funny. They often let you know when you are not. 

Each season we will develop a new 2-3 minute routine. Have fun. Don’t expect to be show ready on day one. You have 8 weeks to craft your ideas. But you should never say “I’ve got nothing”. Be prepared. EVERY WEEK Brainstorm, organize thoughts, talk on stage, process that experience in your journal. SIMPLE!

WHY COMEDY CLASSES for KIDS & TEENS

While we are very proud of our students that have begun to get some national and professional notice in competitions and gigs on TV, commercials etc, we are much more excited to see all of our student become better students in all areas.
Improv and Stand-Up Comedy help students discover their best selves building self confidence, creative writing, critical thinking and public speaking. We offer weekly classes Winter, Spring and Fall, plus Summer Camps. We also have teachers at schools, camps and community centers on weekends and after school. Each session starts with Improvisation, playing games that are a ton of fun while teaching valuable life skills. These are the same games we play with corporate groups to develop better leaders, team building, sales, service etc. For our public sessions we include Stand-Up Comedy, taking stories of experience and observation, then crafting original comedy routines. Each session ends a performance showcase of original and improvised comedy skits. The classes and workshops integrate perfectly with cultural arts, language arts and character building/guidance programming.

NYC PIZZA & IMPROV

Our most popular package combines two New York faves – GREAT pizza and AMAZING entertainment. Upon arrival you will be sat at great seats for our signature interactive musical comedy show, improvised based on audience suggestions and participation. Larger groups can book a private performance.  Each guests will be serve pizza from a top local joint. NO TOURISTY FAKE PIZZA HERE!!! This is the pizza the locals eat.

The show resembles WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY but far more NYC flavored. Our performers are all professional stage artists – actors, singers, comics – many with TV credits.

This is ultimate in discovering the REAL New York. We are just a short walk to tourist central, Times Square but we are surround by local shops, restaurants and residential tree lined streets.

No one in New York City delivers this quality high impact programming at these rates. Most charge far more and deliver far less.

$25 includes VIP Seating at a public show (not the nose bleed seats usually given to students). Minimum 2 large slices and a beverage. These shows regularly cost $25 plus a drink minimum.
Saturdays/Sundays 1:3-4:30 (3pm show)
Mondays-Thursdays 5:30-8:30 (7pm Show)

FYI we have a number of catering options (We host corporate events with $50-200pp menus) but the students usually prefer the pizza.

ALSO Have dinner plans elsewhere? Show only tickets for student groups run $15 at matinees 20pp for evening shows.

LARGER GROUPS?
DAYTIME PRIVATE SHOWS starting at $600 for 50ppl
EVENING SHOWS $800 for 50ppl

ADD A WORKSHOP

Improv is a valuable tool for student groups. Improv is a must for any performer in 2019 – learning to be in the moment increases your audition, rehearsal and performance skills as well as creating an entirely new way to work as a performer – Improv Comedy.  We also use Improv to teach student and corporate groups valuable life skills – creativity (story telling, critical out of the box thinking), community (team, respect, listening), leadership (public speaking, self-confidence) sales and service. Improv makes kids & teens better students in all areas of study.

PRIVATE WORKSHOPS Start at $300 – one teacher up to 2 hours is perfect for groups of 10-20, and perhaps a few more.

Add a 45-60 minute workshop before a show for as little as $5/student.

For some events occurring before 5pm we can even include the mini workshop for free. $750 for up to 30 guests to include show, mini workshop and pizza lunch. $25/additional guest.

We believe we have one of the coolest destination available to High School groups – at least that is what groups have told us for the last decade. We have schools from Canada, Australia and nationwide that return year round.

Our shows & workshops have a unique combo of feeling “Off the beaten path” while delivering high quality entertainment and educational value to students, parents and teachers from schools around the world. Because we are not on a traditionally known touristy block our rates are far less than many competitors.

Our style and talent base delivers the quality performer student travel groups expect from a professional New York show and we offer clean entertainment that can be approved by school groups. We offer 300+ shows/year for K12/family audiences. We also host corporate and college groups that also require clean content.

We have TWO primary components – the show and the workshop. Either is a great destination. Together a powerful experience. Here are our most popular options
