Improv Workshop

 Buy tickets here!


Ever find yourself wondering: “What the heck is happening in this scene??” This advanced workshop explores the idea that scenes can often be broken down into one of two categories: one weirdo or two weirdos. We will cover how to recognize which kind of scene you’re in and what you can do in either case. “One Weirdo, Two Weirdos” teaches you to listen carefully so you can identify and build your scenes from a strong position. This way you can develop an instinctive awareness of exactly what the heck is happening in your scene.

Instructor: VINNY FRANCOIS of Montréal Improv

$40 per person
