Spend your Saturday afternoon jumping into longform improv and learn a brand new team with seasoned teacher, David Escobedo!
An original form you can learn nowhere else in the world. It’s a magical hybrid between the Living Room and the Armando. The format makes a distinction between when the improv performer is being their genuine, authentic self and when they are performing characters. There is honest conversation with the audience, and sometimes the improv performers have the ability to do scenes inspired by one another. The Likeable Format was created by The Comments Section in Fullerton, California. It allows for the audience to feel like part of the show, and in some ways… part of the cast. There is not such much a narrative as themes/bits carried through the set and a sense of being in the moment.
Attendees of this workshop perform as part of a longform showcase in the evening of Saturday 21st September.
David Escobedo has been coaching/performing improv since 1995. He began a team right outside of high school called “The ORPHANS” which ran for 13 years. Since then he’s directed street mime troupes that have broken into Christmas Parades and performed with The Mortified Guide available on Netflix. Having just moved from Hollywood with his wife and two cats, David is finished up his MA in Drama with an emphasis in improv. His MA paper was on the individual improv performer’s voice being the most valuable thing to bring into the show.
