Game of the Scene with UCB's Karin Hammerberg

Game of the Scene:

with Karin Hammerberg


This workshop introduces the concept of finding the Game of The Scene in long-form improv. The "game" is the cornerstone of the UCB improv philosophy -- it roughly means being aware of what makes your scenes funny and focusing on it as the scene progresses.

Over the last 15 years, the Upright Citizens Brigade (Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh) have developed a unique unified curriculum that is constantly updated and improved by the best improvisers in the world.  This workshop is your chance to learn one of the core elements of UCB's unique approach toward long form improv.
