BEING BAD:
Everyone wants to be the good guy, to be nice and well thought of and respected. But in improv it’s necessary, important and, dare I say it...fun, to be bad. In this workshop we’ll practice going to our mean and selfish side to mine it for comedy gold. Then we’ll play with the balance of when and how to let the bad guy loose for a satisfying ending. We’ll look at the difference between cartoon villains, everyday jerks, and real evil characters. By the end of this class you’ll be so good at being bad that you might just scare yourself.
