Long Form 101: Building Character
4/14/14 at The UC
In this class we will begin building on the basics of Improv and how to create a 'Harold'. A Harold is a style of long form improv originally developed by Del Close. In his book, Truth in Comedy, (co-written by Charna Halpern), describes a "training wheels Harold" as three acts (or "beats"), each with three scenes and a group segment. With each beat, the three scenes return. By the end of the piece, the three scenes have converged.
This comedy workshop takes place at The Underground Collaborative, 161 W. Wisconsin Ave. Lower Level of the Plankinton Building of the Grand Ave. Mall!
What is Long-Form? Long-form improv is story based improv, often incorporating short scenes connected by story, characters or themes. Comedians can hone their improvisation, sketch and writing, and stand up comedy skills in a safe and professional environment while building relationships with other comedians.
