What do Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Conan O’Brien, and Amy Poehler all have in common?
THEY ALL GOT THEIR START IN IMPROV.
One of the things we hear a lot is that actors don’t know how to showcase themselves.
Sure, there are workshops in town.
You can put up a play or make a web series, but that can be costly.
So how do you get your gorgeous mug out there?
A RENOWNED IMPROV SCHOOL.
Granted, you have to have SOME comic ability.
But, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE WACKY AND KOOKY…
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A STAND UP COMIC.
The “straight man” is important too…
We are so fortunate to have all these great improv schools in LA:
Does improv scare you?
All the more reason to sign up!
The improv schools in L.A. are structured like this:
You start in a BEGINNER class.
You work your way up the ranks (the class levels).
In less than a year, YOU COULD BE performing on their main stage in front of agents and managers and casting directors.
In less than three years, you could be a company member, performing every week and being seen by hundreds of people in the industry.
Even if you don’t think you’re made for SNL, this could OPEN MANY DOORS.
Lastly, AGENTS WANT ACTORS WITH IMPROV TRAINING.
It’s a great resume builder.
It’s awesome training.
So think about getting in an improv class, my friend.
What do you have to lose?
YOU MIGHT EVEN HAVE FUN!
