KEVIN MCDONALD: SKETCHES THRU IMPROV, KIDS IN THE HALL WAY, SUN., 2/3 10-5:30PM

SKETCHES THRU IMPROV, KIDS IN THE HALL WAY w/KEVIN MCDONALD

Sun., Feb. , 10AM-5:30PM

Kevin McDonald from The Kids in the Hall returns to ImprovBoston! 

In this one day intensive workshop, Kevin McDonald takes you through the journey of how the Kids in the Hall would create sketches by using improvisation. After Kevin shares his views and experience on how to create comedy sketches, he will lead the students to discover comedic premises through improv games and scenes. Those scenes will then be replayed and dissected, eventually becoming a fully written, original sketch! This is a fantastic class for anyone looking to gain insight into how to turn your brilliant improv scenes into something more than one and done! 

Cost is $180. A payment plan is available. Contact comedyschool@improvboston.com for more information.
