Voicing Your Reason

We’re back to my favourite week of the year! This week I’ll talk about the philosophy Will Hines centred his classes around during his week in London back in September. Looking at everything you do in improv with the Voice of Reason/Unusual Person dichotomy in mind is super […]

Keep it Simple!

We’ve arrived to what was probably the best week of my year! Maybe not in general, but almost definitely in my comedic life. I’d have to exclude moments like co-creating a whole women’s team, co-creating a show I’m super proud of, writing and performing stand-up for the first […]

Observing Your Environment

Rounding these classes up and figuring out what I took from each class and each teacher is proving to be way more useful than I originally thought it would when I first suggested doing it! Next up is Rick Andrews, head instructor from the Magnet Theatre in New […]

Borrow, borrow, borrow!

At the beginning of September we had Keith Horvath visiting from America. Keith is one of the 70 worldwide alumni of The Second City Directing program, a former Class Administrator and director at The Annoyance and he has taught improv and sketch at Columbia College in Chicago. We […]

Amazing week and weekend with C3? this week! We had Keith Horvath teaching sketch writing on Monday, Rick Andrews teaching a drop-in on Tuesday, Will Hines and Connor Ratliff teaching several workshops during the week – one left today – and a great show on Sunday! So many […]

USA in London

We had a truly great show last night! Playing with Keith Horvath was a lot of fun and we’ll be enjoying his sold out sketch writing class in just little bit. Our guest teams The Die Hards and The Yayas brought a few laughs and we were delighted […]

We’re all storytellers

We’ve had such an amazing time at last night’s show! The Storytelling Jam proved to be a great concept and one we’ll be sure to repeat! This week’s Tuesday Drop-in will not be taught by anyone. Yes, that’s right, there’s no Drop-in class on the 12th September. But […]
