$98 for a Six-Week Improv Course ($225 Value)

During weekly Level 101: Fundamentals of Improv classes, professional instructors use comedic games and exercises to build fundamental skills such as team building, active listening, and communication. The next term begins Saturday, July 14.

If you have taken improv courses previously, you may be able to enroll in a more advanced course with instructor approval. Some classes are held at a different location, which will be announced later.

The ComedySportz Theatre and Training Center

At The ComedySportz Theatre, audience suggestions keep an all-ages, family-friendly and fast-paced vortex of scenes, games, and songs spinning in competitive shows that pit two improv teams against each other. Inside the intimate, 149-seat theater, spontaneity rules as a referee moderates the all-ages-appropriate hilarity pitched between the Chicago Bosses and The Evanston Express. At the end of each comedic duel, the points and audience votes are tallied to determine the winning team, sentencing the losers to feed the doves that live inside the winners' top hats.

The ComedySportz Training Center's seasoned instructors also teach six-week courses in the art of improvised hilarity and the essential virtues of spontaneity, risk taking, and engagement with the moment. Through scene work, ComedySportz games, and short- and long-form improv, students learn to keep audiences roaring in order to jump-start a career or become a more affable bank robber.
