What is improv comedy? Is it different from stand-up comedy?

 

Improv and stand-up are very different. Improv involves games and scenes where there is no script. The audience provides suggestions which the players must use in the performance. It makes every show unique and exciting, because literally no one knows what will happen.

 

Do your classes have age limits?

 

Currently our public classes are for folks 18 and over. However we love teaching kids and teens. The skills of improv increase confidence, listening, and teamwork - exactly what young minds need. The best part is, the kids just think they’re having fun! Our instructors have a combined 40+ years of experience teaching youth. Contact us to learn what we can offer your school, club, or youth group. Just email admin@firstcoastcomedy.com

 

Do your shows have age limits?

 

It depends on the show.

 

Our early shows are always “a show for everyone!” Families, kids, dates, business groups, faith-based organizations... literally everyone is guaranteed to have a great time. 

 

Our late shows are all 18+.

 

I heard improv is interactive. Will they make me go on stage or make fun of me?

 

No way. We use audience volunteers, but the key word is "volunteer." We never make fun of audience members or force anyone on stage who doesn't want to come up. However, we promise that if you do volunteer, you'll have a great time and you'll be glad you joined in.
