Art of Slow Comedy Summer Intensives

The Art of Slow Comedy classes named in Chicago Magazine’s “5 Great Comedy Classes for Fall 2015!”

Always wanted to take Jimmy’s award-winning Art of Slow Comedy classes, but never had the time? Now, you can experience his unique method in an eight-hour intensive.

The Art of Slow Comedy teaches students that before they can be funny, they need to be real and how to slow down so they can find the game in the scene quicker.

In this two-day intensive, you’ll learn how to emotionally connect with your partner so your scene work will be more grounded and real, making long-form as easy as having a conversation.

Things that workshop participants have worked on in the past include…
    • Learning to react honestly and emotionally to your scene partner
    • Creating organic scenes by listening and building off of the last word spoken
    • Learning how to create strong and believable characters
    • How to recognize and heighten the game of the scene
    • Starting in the middle so your scenes will soar
Jimmy will observe your work to find out what you are doing well and help you find your blind spots so you can be more connected, memorable and yes, funny. This intensive is limited to 14 people.
