What is Long Form Improv?
This style of improv is centered around creating scenes inspired by the audience's suggestion. These scenes are comic in nature and can interweave to form a full 25-40 minute show. In long form improv we look for patterns of comic play instead of a quick slap-stick joke. We learn to look for connections and truth, this truth inevitably leads us to something comic yet sincere and tender.
