Improv is for everyone. You can enjoy this whether you are extroverted or shy, a jokester or serious, a student or JV, American or international or even a fake student loitering in the Jake hallways, it doesn’t matter. To address a misconception many folks have: improv isn’t about zany settings or killer punchlines. Though improv often turns out hilarious, that comes from listening to and accepting your scene partners’ choices, being willing to make mistakes, and creating something new together. The skills you develop here just happen to be--sweet bonus--very applicable in business, and life, too. "Great... but, uh, what exactly is improv?" some of you may be wondering. Totally legit question! We're referring to unscripted games, stories, and live scenes, often derived from a given theme or inspiration. Kellogg Improv's classes (an "Essentials" class for beginners and a "Performance Group" for more experienced folks) will get you accustomed to thinking on your feet and collaborating with one another in a fun, laidback setting. And because Chicago is the global epicenter of improv, thanks to housing comedy clubs like Second City and iO (which have launched the careers of folks like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carrell, Bill Murray, Keegan Michael-Key, et al.), we will also take advantage of the opportunity to attend several shows in the city together each year.
