What You'll Get
Today's side deal will make you more spontaneous and spare you the trouble of scripting out your responses to mandatory office chit-chat: for $75, you get a four-week beginner improv course at ComedySportz in Los Angeles (a $275 value). You must be 18 years or older to attend the offered class.
During each beginner improv class, students learn the basic skills of improvisational success, honing in on focus, concentration, teamwork, trust, stagework, and scenework skills. Classes meet for 3.5 hours and take place once a week at ComedySportz' theater at 733 Seward Street. Under the tutelage of experienced funnypersons, students quickly become comfortable and poised to unleash quick-thinking, off-the-cuff remarks.
Groupon customers can register for one of the following four-week sessions (space subject to availability): Wednesdays, June 30 to July 21; Sundays, August 1 to 22; Tuesdays, August 31 to September 21; Thursdays, September 2 to 23; and Tuesdays, October 5 to 26. Extra sessions might be added if demand demands it.
Although there are few online reviews of ComedySportz classes, Yelpers give the actors' improvisation-based comedy performances 4.5 stars:
- This place is awesome. I laughed so hard I almost cried at some points. – Tania H.
- If you like to laugh, if you like to have fun, this is the place for you! – Eva W.
- I've been involved in the LA Improv scene for almost 10 years now. I've studied, performed in and watched shows all over town. I can honestly say ComedySportz has the best vibe in Los Angeles! – Andy G.
