ZZZ-Building Character and Game Through Obsession

Sunday, Nov 12, 2023 @ 2:00 PM • $50.00

Most great comedy characters are obsessed (or at least comically preoccupied) with something. The closer the obsession is to the character's core — the more it says about their insecurities, delusions, passions, values, etc. — the funnier it's likely to be. In this workshop, we'll explore the idea of obsession in improv and use it to quickly build characters and discover scenic games. Recommended for intermediate to advanced players.
