The Nursery/ Maydays Online Improv Elective: Improvised Rap with Will Naameh

Description: This open elective runs Monday 28th September 7 - 9.30pm BST

Open - A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.

In this workshop we’ll cover the basic building blocks of improvised rap, how to find your flow, how to successfully rhyme and land punchlines in improvised songs, all while keeping things fun, stress-free, chill and relaxed.

The session involves a lot of writing with pen and paper, and not a huge amount of standing up alone and rapping on the spot. The atmosphere is always very relaxed, fun and supportive!

Rapping is one of the things improvisers find most terrifying – this workshop will show you how to turn that fear into freedom and fun.

A hugely useful skill for anyone currently improvising musicals and songs, or looking to further their musical improv repertoire.

Will Naameh (a.k.a. MC Hammersmith) is an improviser and freestyle rap comedian. He performs entirely improvised hip hop comedy under the name MC Hammersmith. He performs across the UK and internationally, and in 2018 won a Scottish Comedy Award for his freestyle performances. Outside of hip hop, he is a member of The Spontaneous Players, known for their sell-out Spontaneous Sherlock and Spontaneous Potter shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond.
