We’ve gone full-blown internet people...
Now that we’ve found a new and permanent home in the real world, it's time to create our permanent home in the internet world.
We want continue offering tools and opportunities to engage with improv and comedy - and the wonderful humans within it. Here you can expect schooling and celebrating within the following four categories:
1) IMPROV FOR YOU
Many of us have experienced the magic of being in the moment at an improv show or class. We aim to make improv education accessible, impactful and fun.
Perhaps you've yet to try your your first drop-in class. This blog is the perfect place to learn, while remaining safe in the sweet sweet anonymity of the internet.
2) IMPROV FOR BUSINESS
Dull days at the office are far too common.
We’ve found, working with engineers, marketing firms, governments, scientists and banks, that an injection of improv can lead to happy, flexible and productive teams. Here we’ll share tips on how to shake up the routine, collaborate intelligently, overcome the fear of failure and find the fun again.
3) Build Up Your Stand-Up
Guelph’s live stand-up community is flourishing and fierce. With The Guelph Comedy Festival, a new open mic show starting this month, a regular feminist comedy show, our monthly Headliners show, and even a Comedy Church, local comics have a wider audience and more access to the artform than ever.
Here we'll help you work up the material (and the courage) to put your first five, fifteen or forty minutes together with advice from local gems and touring vets.
4) It's Your Blog Too
We’ve seen the hilarity of our students and showgoers first hand, and we’d love to provide another off-stage avenue for funny. Maybe you don’t want to try improv, prefer standing off the stage and would like to write comedy. If you can slap together a few funny words, we’d love to read it and maybe even post it here.
Submit any ideas to Blog Maestro Braeden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that we have online and offline spaces to play in, you'll want to make sure you keep up!
