TAKE AN IMPROV CLASS!

Dive into the world of improv comedy with Kismet! Boost your creativity, gain confidence, and master quick thinking in a supportive atmosphere. Whether you're a beginner or honing your skills, our classes promise laughs, growth, and a vibrant community. Join us for a fun-filled journey to comedic greatness!

What's an improv class?

An improv class is a low-pressure, introductory step into the world of improvised theater and comedy. You'll learn the basic concepts of thinking on your feet, creating live comedy, and turning your funny ideas into fun on-stage moments. 

Do I need experience?

No experience needed! Dive into improv with our friendly Improv 101 or 101/201 class. If you're already an improv pro, check out our other classes (or give us a shout) to discover your perfect fit. 

Why should I take one?

If you're looking to get better at thinking on your feet, finding ways to better collaborate with a team, or looking to become an on-stage performer, improv may be for you! 

How can I try it out?

Join us for our warm and inviting weekly practice group every Thursday night at 7 p.m. No prior experience needed – we cultivate a supportive environment for everyone. Payment of $10 can be made in cash or through Venmo. We can't wait to welcome you!

"I started taking classes at Kismet in April 2023. Quickly, I found a supportive, inclusive and kind community who were eager to share their knowledge and skills. I’ve learned so much and met many wonderful people who I can now proudly call my friends and mentors. I highly recommend Kismet Improv to anyone interested in comedy. "
