Joe Spence’s 4th Rule of Improv Workshop

The 4th Rule of Improv, and How It Will Give You
Your Improv Breakthrough


     So you’ve taken a couple improv classes, and you’ve learned that there are a few guidelines that everybody tries to follow when they improvise. Then you saw a couple shows and you notice that everyone appears to be following those “rules”, but there is something different between the shows that your teachers put on and the showcase your friends invited you to…and you can’t quite put your finger on it.

     This workshop spotlights an approach to improvisation that will allow improvisers of any level to conquer that feeling of “trying to keep up” and give any improviser with some amount of training the confidence and ability to hold their own and play with anybody. The 4th Rule of Improv will erase the fear and mystery of how to survive in an improvisation…with anyone.

     This workshop is for newer improvisers and also experienced improvisers looking for a refresh. This should not be your first ever improv experience, but players of all experience levels with any amount training will find this to be a valuable experience.
