Do you want your improv to be so tight, audiences insist you must have written it? Make them laugh until they can't breathe, then make them cry on the very next breath? Are you ready to be emboldened with a technique that makes it impossible for you to have a bad scene?

Join veteran improviser/actor and filmmaker Ben Zolno and his previous students for an epic journey across 8 weeks into this exciting and unique perspective on improv comedy.

"I learnt to express what I feel, and to change it, fast... like being a child again, without ever getting told off!" – Neil M.

"I really loved the incredibly useful formula. It brought me a lot of joy, more joy than any other improv class I have done. I can't wait until the next session." – Ann E.

"It pushed me to display and experience a range of emotions in a fun and playful way. I'm a lot more confident now getting up in front of other people and being responsive to whatever happens next." -Lissa C.

Ben's approach is a mix of Meisner technique, the work of Ivana Chubbuck, and his own method he's developed from his work in the improv scene in Chicago, New York, LA, and Wellington. The class will finish with an open improv format designed for you to put these simple but challenging techniques into action!

Open to all improvisers and all levels of experience.

Ben has studied under or performed for Miles Stroth, Charna Halpern, Dave Razowsky, T.J. Jagodowski, Armando Diaz, Susan Messing, Liz Allen, Peter Gwinn, Bob Dassie, John Lutz, Rob Mello, and Fred Willard, among other excellent mentors.
