Workshop with Jet Eveleth: Playing Honest Improv [SOLD OUT] (SF Improv Fest 2013)
Love the comedy of Ricky Gervais and Louis CK? Having a difficult time playing clever? Try playing real. Let go of feeling robotic on stage and speaking in unnatural tones. Instead of playing a fairly convincing human, be a human. This workshop will focus on making improv easy by bringing more of yourself to the stage. It will result in playing more actively and more emotionally real in scenes.
