ABOUT THE COURSE
Learn the classic improv longform, "The Armando," performed weekly by the Kismet Marquee players. Named after its creator, Chicago Improv teacher and player Armando Diaz, this improv format starts with a storytelling-style monologue, based on an audience suggestion. After the monologue, players play a series improvised scenes inspired by the monologue. This class will focus on how to tell a great monologue, and how to use a monologue as inspiration for a 20-minute show.
