More About the Workshop from Jonathan Monkhouse

Shortform: Longform, But Faster.

Who ARE those people who speak in alphabetical sentences? Why are these comedians so obsessed with the number 185? Are those superheroes so drawn to this party because they long to live like normal humans?

In this workshop we will look at how to give those short, sharp, fun improv games more meaning. It's great when they're funny, it's magnificent when they matter.

Drawing on Longform techniques and nestling them in shortform games, we will learn to give depth and emotion to our silliness, without losing our silliness.
