PLAYING GAME THE BARKLEY WAY: COUCH’S CUSTOM 402 ADVANCED GAME WORKSHOP (IMPROV WORKHSOP)

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. 

Todd Couch was in the first ever graduating class from the theater back when it was the Voodoo Comedy Playschool. He has been performing Improv, sketch, and stand up for the past ten years on stages all over town including the Opening Ceremonies of the Denver Comic Con. He is a founding member of Barkley and has been hosting the Improv Jam every week for the past five years. He also performs with Makeshift Shakespeare improvising hour-long Shakespeare plays. Todd has studied improv and sketch with classes, intensives, and workshops in Denver, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. He most recently studied at the Magnet Theater and the Pack Theater over the pandemic. The RISE Comedy Theater’s green room sofa is named after him, The “Todd Couch Couch.” They got your back.
