Improv 201 builds on the basic principles of improv and helps you make strong comedic choices, taking you from learning the ‘game’ of the scene to The Harold, the longform improv structure invented by Del Close and used to train improvisers all over the country. Completing this course allows you to audition for the Improv Comedy Power Hour!

Pre-requisite for Improv 201: Students are expected to have completed ArtsQuest's Improv 101 before beginning this class. If you have not taken Improv 101 with ArtsQuest but have other experience (Upright Citizen's Brigade, Philly Improv Theater) and want to enroll in 201, please contact Ryan Hill at rhill@artsquest.org.

If you enroll in 201 without having completed 101 or received approval to enroll, you may be removed from the class at the discretion of the instructor.

If you’d like to take this class but do not have the means, we encourage you to apply for an ArtsQuest Comedy Class Scholarship.

Students must be 18 or older by the first day of class. Instructor may change based on availability.

Matt Candio has been studying and performing improv and sketch since 2009. In 2011, he began training at the Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC. His teachers include Chelsea Clarke, Ben Rameaka, Gavin Speiller, and Betsy Stover. Outside of the UCB, Matt has trained with Rachael Mason at The Second City in Chicago. He performs at the ArtsQuest Center every first and third Friday of the month as part of We’re Good, You’re Great and is a member of the ArtsQuest Comedy Committee.
