Adult Classes

Adult Comedy Improv

Friday, February 23

7:30PM - 10PM


Local Atlantic Highland's resident, Network television executive, writer, director, and executive producer, Jon Crowley, will be teaching an intensive one-day Comedy Improv Workshop for adults. Hold-on tight as Crowley will lead students through a variety of improv games he learned during his time with LA's famous GROUNDLINGS comedy troupe and his twenty years of study under famed improv guru, Gary Austin. From there, the group will explore creating memorable characters AND learn the craft of transforming improvised moments into scripted comedy sketches. Throughout the workshop, students will also gain confidence on stage... and how to use improv to their advantage during auditions and scripted scene work. This class is open to novices as well as advanced improv students-- all that is necessary is to bring a sense of fun, and leave your inhibitions at the door.  In addition to his work with the Groundlings, Jon Crowley was a member of the Laugh Factory's in-house comedy troupe, THE LEFTFIELDERS, performed stand-up throughout LA (The Improv, Ice House, etc), and helped develop hit TV shows such as THE IMPRACTICAL JOKERS, LIZARD LICK TOWING, CONSPIRACY THEORY and WIFE SWAP. 


Class is held at 54 First Avenue Atlantic Highlands NJ.
