The Maydays Twoprov Improvisation Comedy Course

Description: A level 3 Maydays improvised comedy course

An eight-week course in the art of duo improv – from a 2 person scene through to creating an entire show with just 2 improvisers.

What can I expect?

Exercises which drill into techniques to build strong 2 person scenes
Editing and Character building skills needed for duo shows
Exploration of longform structures that support 2 person work
You don’t need to be in an existing duo or have previous experience of doing 2 person shows. Duos are very welcome to apply but please note you’ll be working with all course participants over the 8 weeks.
Who is this course suitable for?

Those with previous longform improvisation experience (Maydays level 3 or equivalent)
Those wanting to develop strong scene work
Those looking to create and perform in an improv duo show or develop a current team

The course will culminate in a showcase for family and friends on the 5th June at The Maydays Studio.

Heather’s own duo improv show ‘Ten Thousand Million Love Stories’ has toured to The US, Canada, Germany, Spain, Romania, Italy, Pakistan and Malawi. She also has a musical duo show with I.O’s Joe Bill ‘Blues Hammer’ which debuted at Dubai International improv conference in 2017 and will appear next at Lyon improv festival in May 2018.

“I’ve now completed 4 courses and would genuinely say they’ve been one of the most enriching experiences of my life thus far. The cherry on the cake is the fact that the teachers themselves are also totally lovely humans. I think you can only do yourself a huge favour by getting involved with The Maydays in one form or another…”
