Comedy Improv with Aimee McKay
Aimee McKay began improvising while living in London where she sold used American vacuum cleaners over the phone to pay for classes. A graduate of Emerson College, she plays “Principal Snyder” on Disney’s Walk the Prank and has appeared on 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, Arrested Development, Raising Hope, The Neighbors and Don’t Trust the B— in Apt. 23. She spent three years with the Second City Touring Company where she performed and taught improv from Washington State to Vienna, Austria, as well as a year with The Second City on Norwegian Cruise Line. She has trained with Keith Johnstone, Paul Sills, UCB, iO, the Annoyance, and the Second City Conservatory. For more, check out www.AimeeMcKay.com!
Explore the collaborative creation of spontaneous, single-use theatre, created in the moment, and shared only by the performers and audience. Learn the basics of improvisation such as “Yes, And…”, dive into character exploration, ensemble, emotional commitment, and spontaneously create full scenes just from a one word suggestion. The goals? While there will be laughs, this intensive is about connecting, being present in the moment, and telling the truth. And you’ll end the weekend with a completely improvised show! Come create and have fun with our improv expert, Aimee McKay! For all levels. Ages 18 & up. Intimate setting, space limited.
