SF Improv Festival Master Class Series: Armando Diaz
He's back! After selling out his last workshop, 'Improv Bootcamp' at SFIF 2010, Armando Diaz is returning to San Francisco to teach a master class on the monologist-driven improv format popularly known as "The Armando".

This class is aimed at those who have worked with Armando in the past and/or those with a solid understanding of improv basics under their belts and at least a year's experience onstage. In addition to a solid, fun improv workout, students in this two-day intensive get personal feedback on what they need to work on to make themselves better, more honest improvisers. The workshop consists of two 4-hour sessions and a performance opportunity after the workshop on Sunday the 24th.

Armando Diaz is widely regarded as one of the best improv teachers in New York City and beyond. His list of teaching credits is a long one: the ImprovOlympic Theater, Victory Gardens Theater, The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, The Peoples Improv Theater, and Michael Howard Studios.

A Chicago native, Armando studied improv under Del Close at the ImprovOlympic, Mick Napier at the Annoyance, and graduated from the Second City Conservatory. He performed in and helped create one of the most popular improvised longforms in Chicago, "The Armando Diaz Experience." For the last decade, "the Armando" has been performed weekly in Chicago, and is now taught and performed in many other cities including Los Angeles and New York.

In addition to writing and producing short films, Armando wrote sketches for the show Upright Citizens Brigade on Comedy Central, and has performed on Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Armando lives in Manhattan with like, nine roommates.

Having hosted Armando for his first visit to the Bay, the San Francisco Improv Festival is proud to bring the Bay Area improv community another helping of Armando & his work!

Q&A

Question: Hi there. I am interestd in the IMprov workshop. I am quite green with Improv. Not alot of experience. Would you suggest another ongoing class ? or ? Thanks
Answer: Heya - This is a class for more experienced improvisors - there are a bunch of workshops and schools that are ongoing that you should check out. Being from SF, most of my suggestions are city-based, but they are a start: CLASSES: BATS Improv http://www.improv.org/ SF Comedy College http://www.sfcomedycollege.com/ Endgames http://www.endgamesimprov.com/ Pan Theater (oakland) http://www.pantheater.com/ Also, our workshop on Freestyle Hip Hop Improv will have a beginner section, if you are musically inclined... That will happen in early May. Check back at www.sfimprovfestival.com for more details in the next week. And there are a number of jams to go to at Endgames, the Dark Room in the Mission (every Tuesday), and Improv Luv at the 9th street independent film center every last Thursday (tonight)! Go get 'em!
