Improvisation Society

Why Join Us?

2) We're (for the most part) fun

3) We'll make you more confident

What do we do?

University is the perfect place to try new and scary things. What could be scarier than standing in front of a bunch of strangers and trying to make them laugh with no script or plan? This is the society where we teach you how to do it.

We will teach you the fundamental skills necessary for long-form improv, and provide a warm environment for you to hone your skills and find your comedic voice.

We're a warm bunch, I swear!

What is long form/short form?

Short-form improvisation is games. Silly little games. For example: trying to do a scene without asking questions, or using only one word at a time, or re-enacting Little Red Riding Hood as a sci-fi. Two jam-packed hours filled with high-concept games.

Long-form improvisation is scenes. Two or more people taking a suggestion from the audience and building a scene together and weaving it into a narrative. It takes more practice and more skill, but it's more rewarding for an audience.
