Comedy 4 Teens by Teens October 30 Show

Comedy 4 Teens by Teens at Broadway Comedy Club NYC

We had an amazing show this week at the Broadway Comedy Club in Times Square where eight amazingly talented teens performed a 1-hour show of Improv and original Stand-Up Comedy. October 30 will be a similar line up of performers, however a completely new show because the Improv comedy is created on the spot based on your suggestions and participation. The Stand-Up Comedy line-up may feature different comics as well as new material from the comics seen in the above video.

Improv ClassesWHY IMPROV COMEDY?

Improv is a ton of fun, YES, AND very useful teaching numerous life skills. In addition to performing, Improv teaches creative writing, critical thinking (out of the box), community (team, respect, listening, focus) and leadership (public speaking, self confidence, eye contact).

The interactive shows alone are very therapeutic. Laughter has been known to be very beneficial to one’s health as it lowers blood pressure and decreases stress. Studies at John Hopkins have proven laughter to even raise test scores and better test prep. People that are allowed to have joy and laughter in their lives participate in the process of education and thereby learn far better and faster.

Every workshop starts with warm-up games that prepare the individual and team to work and play. Simple games like ZIP ZAP ZUP require focus, listening and eye contact while having fun. We teach its OK to “mess-up” and not to judge or worry about correcting others. Instead we let minor mishaps pass without comment. We eliminate fear of failure, because there are no mistakes in Improv.

We teach about story telling. Improv is as much about writing as it is performance. We develop characters and relationships, settings and action for our stories on the spot. In Improv we call this the WHO, WHERE and WHAT of a scene. By learning how to craft a story in this hands-on matter, students return to Language Arts classes better prepared to write essays and original stories as well as tackle the classic novels, short-stories, plays and poems.

I know I never appreciated Shakespeare until approaching the plays as an actor. Similarly we teach how to bring these character to life. We empower ones imagination and critical mind at the same time.

Humor and creativity work in similar ways, says humor guru William Fry, M.D., of Stanford University–by creating relationships between two disconnected items, you engage the whole brain.

Building a better mind leads to success in all areas of study. While we focus on Language Arts, Team & Leadership skills, students of these fields excel in all areas of study. Abstract concepts in science and math now seem easy to comprehend. Characters in history come alive.

NO TWO SHOWS ARE EVER THE SAME. Unscripted the cast daily reacts to the news and scandals of the day. Classical literature and box office hits are equally damaged beyond recognition. You will walk away amazed at the quick wit of the cast.
