Who are the Girls?
Brooke and Summer are a new media happy ending: meeting on MySpace, being fans and supporters of each others’ work and growing into good friends. “We would send each other new blogs that we fancied, or new music that we couldn’t get enough of,” says Summer. “We are both traditional on some things and innovative on others,” adds Brooke. The girls’ paths have connected with The Girls With Glasses Show project, but it took …. READ MORE
Improvisation is the art of thinking on your feet and creating off the top of your head. Being funny “in the moment” is difficult enough without adding music to the mix. …the reason? keep time, make it rhyme and still BE FUNNY!!
Additionally, a musician must be equal to the task and CREATE new music on the spot if they are performing at an Improvisation Club – right?

Saturday, March 14th | 1-3 pm
We are thrilled to have one of our very own beloved JesterZ, Michael Yichao, in the house to facilitate an incredible workshop for improv and comedy students of all experiences and backgrounds. The workshop titled: “Make ‘Em Laugh, Then Punch Them In The Feels” is about digging into comedy through drama – finding truthful, deep characters and relationships, then cracking them open and exploding them out into the realm of the comedic and absurd. Being funny is serious business, and this workshop digs into the dichotomy and duality of serious fun.
I asked Michael who is the ideal attendee for this workshop and he said, “People with some improv experience who are maybe hungry for more improv and a desire to deepen and sharpen their acting skills. However, it is definitely open and appropriate for students of all skill levels.”
I’m excited for the Jester’Z Training Center to offer this incredible workshop because the very heart of it is how comedy opens the channel for truthful emotional connections. The reality is that this is something we could all benefit from…on or off the stage!
SPACE IS LIMITED to only 12 attendees, so be sure and register right away!
Mallory… Mallory… Mallory!!
