Workshops for Improvisers and Actors 

Monterey, CA

August 28, 2021

Irreverent Improv is excited to come to Monterey to run two workshops for improvisers and actors to up their game and get used to performing live again.





10:00am – 12:00pm

Getting Back in the Saddle

(for actors & improvisers)

Now that we can be on stage, in-person, with other actual humans, re-learn how to connect with your scene partners on stage. Whether you are an actor or an improviser (or both!), come learn tools to connect with your scene partners to quickly find emotional connections between your characters to take your performances somewhere real and fun.







1:00pm – 3:00pm

Snapping Into Characters

(for actors and improvisers)

Learn improv tools to instantly create definable characters that will relate to your acting partners. You don’t need the actors’ studio to nail those auditions. This is a great class for improvisers and actors that want to dive in and quickly create characters and have fun in the process.


$35 for each workshop

$60 if you take both
