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.

Intro To Long Form Improv!Come learn the long form improv style known as The Harold. In this workshop we will deconstruct the format and have a ton of fun! Character and scene work will be a focus while building on the structure. A Harold is a style of long form improv originally developed by Del Close. In his book, Truth in Comedy, (co-written by Charna Halpern), describes a "training wheels Harold" as three acts (or "beats"), each with three scenes and a group segment. With each beat, the three scenes return. By the end of the piece, the three scenes have converged.
