What is Long-Form? Long-form improv is story based improv, often incorporating short scenes connected by story, characters or themes. Comedians can hone their improvisation, sketch and writing, and stand up comedy skills in a safe and professional environment while building relationships with other comedians. Educational advancement is offered through professional workshops, as well as bi-monthly sessions like Writer's Block.
