Instant Improv Meetup
Time & Location
About the Event
Improv Comedy is the art of spontaneously creating hilarious situations, memorable characters and moving stories collaboratively, in real time, without a script. Together, we create a conscious, supportive space where we focus on becoming good listeners, making spontaneous choices, and working together as a team. We empower each other with the “Freedom to Fail,” thereby unleashing our inner creativity.
And most importantly, we make each other laugh!
Please note that at Instant Improv we concentrate on compassionate, uplifting comedy. Every Meetup begins with a pronoun round, and all participants are expected to treat each other with good intentions.
Because improv involves saying the first thing that comes to mind, it can surface our biases, however unconscious. When problematic assumptions and stereotypes appear in our games or scenes, we take that as an opportunity to learn. At the end of every Meetup, we engage in a feedback round where everyone is invited to share if something made them feel erased, stereotyped or unsafe, and we discuss how we can do better. In this way, we hope to become not only better improvisers, but better people.
