New York Improv Classes

Improv WorkshopsThe National Comedy Theatre improv classes are an exciting and fun approach for people from all walks of life: actors, writers, lawyers or plumbers, beginners to experienced performers, the skills we teach can be applied to all areas.

Ask any casting director what skills are most important when seeing an actor at an audition - the vast majority would answer that it is the ability to improv.

Our teachers have been featured in commercials, film and television as well as performed in theaters across the country and all around the world. Whether you want to perform improv in front of a live audience, nail that next audition or develop the skills that can help you on any stage, set or work environment, the National Comedy Theatre improv classes can help you achieve your goals.

We offer three levels of adult workshops, each building upon the lessons of the previous.
Class sizes are limited, and are taught in six week sessions.

Second Semester

6 weeks
Fee $199.00
Prerequisite - NCT First Semester


Building upon the skills learned in Level 1, this class places a stronger emphasis on character and complex scene development. Improv theory, story-telling and advanced improv skills are learned as well as a myriad of short form games.  This class will culminate in an invited performance at our theatre.
