There are two chances to take a workshop with Andy Livengood during the NewSouth Comedy Festival
Do you have a problem playing characters in your improv? Do you feel like your stuck in a rut, playing the same four people over and over again? Do you want to stretch your range? If you answered yes to any of these, this is the workshop for you! In this fun and fast paced workshop you’ll learn how to create spontaneous characters. You’ll learn how to strengthen the people you already play and how to create personas that you didn’t know you had in you. Using high energy and fun techniques Andy will help you build unique, complex, and strong characters to take back to your improv and sketch performances. This class will combine communication techniques, clowning exercise, and improv to build your new characters “from the ground up.” Every student will walk away with new fun characters in their back pocket.
Improv to Solo Performance
This class will focus on creating solo sketches and character monologues. Students will use improv to create compelling, unique characters then learn how to place these characters in scenes for maximum comedic effect. Students will leave the class with a few specific ideas to mine for future sketch shows or solo performances.
