Improv Sandbox w/ Brian Palermo (Sun 2/21 – Sun 3/14)

Who wants to play?!  I want to keep this loose and fun.  So I’ll design each class based on some improv fundamental.  Think Commitment, Emotion, Character.  Stuff like that.   We’ll explore that skill with exercises and forms.  Purposeful Silliness.  Goal-oriented Fun.  Creatively Cooperative.  Playful.  Sandbox.

Brian Palermo – I’ve been deeply into improv for over 30 years.  Have performed, taught, directed and coached for nearly as long.  My home theatre is The Groundlings in Los Angeles but I’ve played and taught internationally.

I am a regular in The Crazy Uncle Joe Show – which is The Groundlings’ weekly long form set – every Wednesday for 19 years!  I think we’re the longest running long form set in L.A.

I’m very happy to teach at RISE Comedy!  And for this Advanced class, I’ll be using some of the same techniques that developed the characters of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Will Ferrell, Maya Rudolph, Lisa Kudrow and more.
