ONLINE IMPROV CLASSES
If you are ready to perform improv on stage in a more challenging and creative format, this course is for you. This course is open to improvisers of all experience levels. In this course, you'll hone your long-form improv scene skills with focused sidecoaching as you work on a format specially selected to fit the talents of you and your classmates.
This six-week long course concludes with a performance at LIT's IMPROV WARS in Adams Morgan. And who knows? Maybe even more!
SKETCH COMEDY CLASSES
Have you ever watched Saturday Night Live and thought that you could write something funnier? Ever think to yourself that you have the funniest idea, but you just don't know how to write it? In this course, you'll learn the basics of sketch writing and the different types of sketches. You'll learn how to take your own observations and truths and turn them into fully written sketches. You'll also learn the mechanics of LIT's philosophy in the writers room — every joke can work, and we're all more successful when we're positive, supportive and constructive.
