No lack of class…

imageBusy, busy, busy… Friday night will see the last PythonProv performance (for now) of Spiny Norman, the team I’ve been exploring improvised Monty Python with at the iO Chicago.
And Sunday, I’ll be starting two more classes: my Python Process class, which will teach students the Pythons wrote, and how to use their methods to improve your own sketch writing.
But that’s not all. Also on Sunday, I’ll be teaching the SNL Sketch Writing class developed by my dear pal Michael McCarthy as part of the iO’s terrific writing program!
I always tell my students that, unlike many other writing programs, when you finish one of Michael’s writing classes, if you do the work, you’ll walk away with a complete portfolio package that you can start sending off to agents. Not bad, eh?
And in eight weeks, I’ll even have a crop of graduates ready to put on shows!
But both classes are filling up rapidly, so if you’re interested, call or email the iO Chicago now.

End of commercial. Thanks.

PythonProv Rising!

…You may recall that I’ve been teaching PythonProv–where Monty Python and Improv come together–at the iO Chicago theatre recently. My Level 2 class is wrapping things up in a big way–with a free show this Friday night at 7 pm in the Jason Chin Cabaret at the iO.

This one is going to be fun, folks, and a great way for the class to go out in a blaze of glory. You’re all invited. End of commercial.
