ImprovBoston presents: THE INTERN INFO RUN-DOWN:
So… you want to be an intern. Here are some things you should know!
We offer internships in exchange for ImprovBoston Comedy School (IBCS) classes. Our most common internships are Floaters & Office interns, described below.
1. Floater Interns
Many of our IBCS interns become “Floaters,” which entails working with our Front of House crew one show-night per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are Wednesday-Friday evenings.
As a Floater, you are essentially assistant to the House Manager & our nightly staff, helping out with tasks as needed. Often including setting up & breaking down the theaters for shows, greeting & assisting patrons.
Being a Floater is a great way to be in the hub of the IB community and to get to know many members of the amazing ImprovBoston family. For these positions, we look for friendly, high-energy applicants with “Can-Do” attitudes.
2. Office Interns
We also have IBCS interns work two (2) 4hr-days per week for 8 weeks. These shifts are generally Tuesday/Thursday or Wednesday/Friday 1-5PM.
Our office interns have the chance to get a feel for what working behind the scenes at a comedy theater is like. You will help our small, but mighty, office staff with general office administrative tasks, inventory organization, light handy-work (like vacuuming or putting duct tape on a box. You know, handy-work!), and other weekly tasks.
Some of our rockstar interns have transitioned into a more specialized field (photography, graphic design, sales, etc.), but only after one session “working the office.”
*** ImprovBoston expects interns looking to work in exchange for an IBCS class to begin their internship about 2 weeks prior to the start of the session in which they wish to enroll.
*** Resume & interview will be required.
