LONG FORM IMPROV COMEDY

with Kelly Kreye from Rose City Comedy Collective


DESCRIPTION

What do Tina Fey, Bill Murray, Steve Correll all have in common? They all performed long form improv comedy. In this workshop we will take you through the basics of the art of Long Form Improv. These basics are the skills of listening, give and take, finding agreement - "Yes and...", and building on other people's ideas. Bring your self and your spirit to this workshop and be amazed at how much fun you can have making things up on the spot! ABOUT KELLY Kelly Kreye is the founder and instructor at Rose City Improv. He has been teaching and performing long form improv comedy for almost two decades. He began his studies at The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City before moving on to learn under the guidance of Armando Diaz (who is widely regarded as one of the most influencial improv teachers ever) at The Magnet Theater. From these early beginnings he was like a fish - hooked on improv. Kelly was part of many improv groups and shows you have certainly never heard of - The Future Mrs. Goldman, Chet Watkins, Gluttony, The Nine Famous Irishmen, Reality TV Live, Gonzo: An Improvised Evening with Hunter S. Thompson, and many, many others. Some very talented people Kelly has had the pleasure of working with Ed Herbstman (Da Ali G Show), Zack Woods (The Office), T.J. Jagodowski, Dave Pasqueisi, Jean Villepique (The Office), Christina Gausas (30 Rock/Conan O'Brien), Rachel Hamilton (30 Rock), Kevin Mullaney, John Delaney, Charlie Todd (Improv Everywhere), Jeff Hiller (Community/Broad City), Charlie Saunders (Key & Peele), and many more. Kelly is now looking to share his knowledge in comedy as well as build a wonderful community in Welland around the unique human activity of laughter.
