The New Movement Theater - Central East Austin: $65 for Beginner's Improv, Sketch, or Comedy-Writing Class at The New Movement Theater (Up to $200 Value)

Without actors, criminals would have to be released from jail to play themselves in Batman movies. Keep the streets safe with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get enrollment in a six- or eight-week beginner-level improv, sketch, or comedy-writing class at The New Movement Theater (up to a $200 value).

Laugh connoisseurs Chris Trew and Tami Nelson, a comedic partnership deemed "wildly talented and relentlessly inventive" by the Austin Chronicle, lead a cast of off-the-cuff thespians that school guests in the art of comedy during a varied schedule of six- to eight-week classes. Level 1 improv classes immediately thrust students onto the stage to learn the fundamentals of long-form improvisation through working with their peers to create side-splitting scenes. Alternatively, the Sketch 1 class encourages participants to write with dogged fervor and shows them how to use roundtable discussions to develop sketch concepts and figure out what toppings everyone wants on their pizza. Sign up for the comedy-writing class to glean knowledge on the genre's different formats, such as satire and parody, before creating a style-spanning portfolio and investigating publishing opportunities. While enrolled in The New Movement's classes, students can attend any of the theater's shows for free to inspire their own work and perfect the knee-slapping technique.
