Jill Whelan, star of the TV show "The Love Boat" and movie "Airplane" is teaching a new comedy Improv class. Not only will the truth set you free, but the truth is funny! Come be a part of the real "truth" in comedy! Improv is the most honest form of acting, because it teaches the actor to listen. True Improv is getting on-stage and performing without any preparation or planning - in other words, flying by the seat of your pants just like real-life. Learn with a working group of actors how to truly hone your craft and have the time of your life! Exercises include the Harold, which is a favorite of Second City and Improv Olympics.
The class is ongoing, however an 8 week commitment is required.
