Lockdown Update – September 3:  Due to the length of the ongoing lockdown, we are once again offering online sketch comedy writing courses – save 50% on our intro course with code LOCKDOWN50. All other events are postponed until further notice. If you book for an upcoming improv workshop, it will be postponed on a rolling basis to match the length of the lockdown – i.e. some improv courses listed for October/November start dates may actually begin in January. By booking now you are saving your spot.
