Advanced Short-Form Workshop

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Shortform improv is, by some, thought of as the kid brother of long-form improv. No longer! Popularized by shows like Whose Line and Wild ‘n Out, shortform improv provides a language and skill set for all improvised performance. In this workshop, you’ll learn half a dozen stage-ready shortform games, as well as advanced improv skills like finding the comedic angle, connecting with the audience, finding the scene within the game, and when to make and break the rules. After this crash course, you’ll be comfortable performing shortform games on stage and using these shortform skills to make your longform scenes snappier and stronger.

Taylor Bruneaux is an alumni of ImprovBoston’s Face Off and Harold Night, where she performed short- and longform improv weekly to suspecting and unsuspecting crowds. She is also an alumni of ComedySportz Boston. Currently, Taylor performs the festival circuit with her longtime improv team and longer-time best friends, Cuddle Party.
