Bang Comedy Institute and Theater
Since 1995, Bang Comedy Institute and Theater has trained performers in the art of the extemporaneous. In the process, it's built up a history of boosting the careers of comedic actors such as Jane Lynch, Jeff Garlin, Janeane Garofalo, and Fred Willard and the personal joke writers of several heads of state. Hailing from backgrounds in film acting and writing for shows including MADtv, the faculty turn students into confident stage performers in classes that sharpen skills in character development, long-form scene structure, and physical awareness. Many students go on to star in shows on the company's stage.
