Cardiff Impro: Weekend Improv Comedy Intensive (Cardiff, Wales)

Spontaneity assists people: inter-personal, confidence and risk-taking.


For all walks of life, improv comedy will offer a development in confidence, communication and spontaneity. In-line with the background of Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell and Brits such as Eddie Izzard, Paul Merton and Phil Jupitus, the course advocates the use of improvisation for everyone. No need to be an actor or comedian, but you’re allowed too.


The weekend intensive is led by Nathan Improv. The workshops shall explore spontaneity and its application to create comedy live. There is a weekend course available for all ages on 30th and 31st January, 11am - 5pm @ Cardiff Arches, John Street, Cardiff CF10 5PE*. In the course, we shall explore thoughts on the use of fun, enhancing the performance of the players through using playfulness in their improvisation. Its rather obvious that fun is engaging to see and is also fun for the performers. Playfulness gets us out of the way of ego, judgement and expectations, which are three elements that kill our improv. We shall search the basics of improvisation: listening, agreement and adding, committing and supporting each other. Improv is an open art form, where we search for freedom and honesty for comedy!
