PROCESS the Workshop (A Form Which Parodies The Process of Putting on a Play)


Process is the 20-year brainchild of 2 long-running improv groups from Austin, TX. First developed by well hung jury and performed at the 2002 Chicago Improv Festival, this format has been honed and sculpted by Sweetlamb’s current group, Available Cupholders. It is a parody of the process of putting up a scripted play broken into sections. The improvisers first audition for their roles, then work a table read scene, before a section on rehearsals, leading up to opening night mini longform. Throughout, we see the improvisers “actor” character as well as their “play” character, guided by a “director” character. And if that doesn’t make sense, all will be revealed in the class before you do your own Process show the very same evening (Showcase Tickets Here)

Since being showcased by the Cupholders in various festivals and tours, it has run with indie producers at The PIT in NYC, HUGE in Minneapolis, Impro in LA, and The Playground in Chicago. Jeremy has twice run the show with critical acclaim in Austin at the Hideout Theatre and has toured it to The Shop in St. Louis and various other midwest locations.

Jeremy Sweetlamb is a lifelong student, director, actor, teacher, promoter, producer, and defender of improvised theatre. For 25 years he has lived and trained in Chicago, LA, and New York before returning to his native Austin, TX. He has recorded a comedy album: ‘Beardedlamb Sings Along to the Urban Cowboy Motion Picture Soundtrack.’ He has performed with Bill Hader and Bob Odenkirk at the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal. In 2001, he started a comedy festival called Out of Bounds which grew to become one of the biggest in the country. He continues to embrace failure gracefully by teaching middle school theatre and trying to be a good partner and Dad to two lil bitties.
“It was such an enjoyable lampoon of all things theatrical that I’m already plotting a return visit.” –Robert Faires, Austin Chronicle-https://www.austinchronicle.com/arts/2016-07-08/process/
