Playing Game the Barkley Way 

Couch’s Unofficial 402 Advanced Game Workshop

This two week, advanced workshop will focus on skills Barkley worked on for years in weekly rehearsals from game focused coaches.  The emphasis will be on game, pattern, and heightening and is an expansion and deeper dive into the skills taught in 401.  We will work on pulling premise and incorporating that skill into longer forms like the Living Room and the Armando.  You were introduced to Game in 401, this course will put that into practice with lots of reps while expanding those skills. Completing Rise 401 course or instructor permission is required.

He currently performs improvised Shakespeare plays with the improv team MakeShift Shakespeare, and hosts the Free Community Jam at Rise Comedy with the team Barkley.
