C3? Comic Devices with Kevin Scott of Burn Manhattan/Centralia
Comic Devices - Improvising with structure towards a comedic story. The goal of the workshop is to provide a common language for improvisers to reference off stage and to follow while playing onstage. Going beyond funny characters and dialog towards funny scenes. Learning these comic devices will help improvisors go beyond the usual comic premises, sometimes referred to as the 'game' of the scene or the 'comic engine'. This workshop introduces players comic devices they may not have recognized before and gives a name to ones they may already know.

Concepts include: Basic scene structure, fish out of water, simple but impossible task, collision of opposites, substitution, center and eccentrics and more.
