Our Most Frequently Asked Question
Q: I have some improv experience. Can I skip your 101 level course?
A: No, you cannot. In our 101 course students don’t just learn the fundamentals of improv – they learn a specific style of showmanship. We teach the basics of “Yes And” through ideas and techniques that make our shows unique from other improv shows, and that teach our trainees to be a different sort of improviser.

“At 72, I was clearly the grandfather of my Improv 101 class. I took it to learn something new as I have no background in improv or acting. At our age, research shows it’s important to keep the mind sharp. That’s exactly what Dave Bogan provided. The class makes you think creatively, react quickly and, most important, have a whole lot of fun. I highly recommend it regardless of age or experience.”
David V. - student
"This class was the most enjoyable and positive team based/class experience I have had in years... I have almost no training in the performing arts or public speaking, and was extremely nervous coming to the first class, but from the start, the atmosphere of the class and the style of the teaching (by the experienced and truly excellent David Bogan) was supportive, uplifting and incredibly fun. Unlike a lot of team activities, particularly sports, there was no sense of competitiveness or negativity, and I really enjoyed working with a wide variety of other participants in the class who came from a wide range of ages, professions, and backgrounds. Each week built upon the last and added new games and improv skills, culminating in a live performance at the end of the class which was a BLAST. I really can't recommend this class enough, and before it was over, I was already signing up for the next."

"The improv classes at First Coast Comedy have been the most fun and enlightening experiences I’ve ever had. Immediately after the first class, I was able to build better social and work relationships. The classes are not only about improv, but learning to say “Yes And” to life. My entire being has been enriched by the folks at First Coast Comedy. Thank you all."

"Improv 101 is an excellent way to break up the routine, break into your own confidence, and have a lot of fun doing it. I met new friends and learned a new skill. Highly recommend taking a First Coast Comedy class, if for no other reason than to schedule a few hours of laughs each week!"

"I can't say enough good things about my experience at First Coast Comedy's Improv classes. All you have to bring is a willingness to try and in return you will feel accepted, encouraged, gain confidence, but, most importantly, you will learn to have fun! Dave's ability to make you feel comfortable while getting you to step out of your comfort zone is second to none. I've learned skills through all 3 courses from basic to advanced that I can apply on and off the stage. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity and the memory you can give your family and friends when they will see you perform live. Sign up now!"
Joshua J. - student
"Improv 101 was like playing for 2 hours every week! The games challenged me and pushed me out of my comfort zone in positive ways. Being 71 years old and retired, I found it exhilarating to learn new skills and to learn new skills I had. The class and show were an absolute blast! So much so that I signed up for the next level!"
