Saying witty one-liners, setting up jokes, and listing funny concepts are great skills to have. A lot of times improvisors rely on this cool bag of tricks to get them through the scene instead of opening up and connecting with their partners. This workshop will help you to stop relying on your super sassy brain and get you to start letting your emotions fly free as they bring you to more truthful (and way funnier) reactions.
