A lot of you have come up to me after the last couple of shows and said how freakin’ hilarious Held2gether is. A couple of you have wistfully commented, “Wow, improv looks like so much fun.”

Um, well… duh.

I don’t mean that in an ornery way. I just mean, we’re not that good of actors, people. It looks fun because it is fun. We are honestly having a blast up there. There’s something so amazing about making people laugh their asses off by taking some simple suggestion they’ve given you and turning it into an infomercial or a movie or a scene about ice skaters with spindly legs. After a show, I feel like I’ve done my good deed for the week by making people happy.

And just so you know, Held2gether students aren’t selfish! We want everyone to have as much fun as we have! That’s why we’re offering even MORE improv classes than ever before! It’s time to sign up for the next round, so don’t wait to register – last session’s classes all maxxed out and some folks couldn’t get in. We have Intro to Improv Comedy and Improv Comedy Level 2 classes starting the first week of May. There’s a 1/2 day workshop in June, and the Improv Comedy for Teens workshop in July. You can register for all of them at the website, or email Darren for more information.

Life’s too short to miss out on the fun, peeps!
