BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! The GIT 101 course is moving online.
This 8-week class is the beginning of our core curriculum and introduces you to the GIT's style and approach to improvisation as influenced by the Upright Citizens Brigade and Second City.

This class will teach you the fundamentals of long-form improvisation. You will learn about basic scenework, emotion, agreement, listening, and playing grounded characters. Get out of your head and start being in the moment!

*Due to this being an online course, certain aspects of stagecraft and physicality will be quite difficult to learn which is why once we are allowed to be in person again we will offer a free Stagecraft & Physicality workshop for anyone taking the 101 online course.

Taught by: Jason Perez
Jason Perez, Artistic Director of the Edinburgh International Improv Festival and Co-Director of the Glasgow Improv Theatre, is originally from outside of Los Angeles (Upland to be more specific) where he started doing improv 19 years ago. He would later go on to train, perform, and/or teach with such companies as Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade, National Comedy Theater, Comedy Sportz, Improv Olympic, and the Peoples Improv Theater. He has also taught improv at numerous high schools, universities, and festivals both back in the states and internationally. Currently, Jason teaches improv with The Tron Theatre as well as running and performing in shows around Scotland like Dating Crapp, Glasgow Harold Night with the House Team Couch, and the KinkyFish Improv Jam. He is also the Co-Director of the Arts Not For Profit, Blank Script Ltd.

About the Glasgow Improv Theatre
Our goal is to help nurture the budding improv scene in Glasgow by providing structured training and performance opportunities.

We focus on American-style long form improv comedy, with a strong emphasis on game-of-the-scene and grounded reality.

The theatre will be essentially taking over Improv Glasgow (founded 2016) which has ran the monthly show Glasgow Harold Night as well as drop-in workshops and jams.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Improv Theatre Online Course are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
