Workshop: Improv for Audio with Tyler Chick


Date: Saturday, October 26, 2-5pm

Prerequisite: Intro to Improv

WORKSHOP: Improv for Audio

Improv: It's not just one skill, but an entire set of skills!

Many of us have already heard improv in an audio format due to the rise of the comedy podcast. Listening to these folks creating scenes without any visuals, you may be wondering:

How are these scenes so effective without so many skills I've been practicing, like object work, stage picture, and traditional editing?

What are the benefits and challenges of doing improv without visuals?

How do I get started learning these concepts?

All of these questions will be answered in a newly revamped workshop this October!

Plus: Graduates of the workshop (after being trained in the Harold through our Game of the Scene curriculum track) will be eligible to perform in The Bat, a monthly show at the HIT. The Bat takes place entirely in the dark, giving you the perfect opportunity to put these ideas into practice!

You'll also be equipped to get started planning your own improv-based podcast!
