Long-form Improvisation uses suggestions in a different way from short-form improvisation, such as theatre sports. In long-form, suggestions are creatively extrapolated and subsequently deconstructed and heightened in front of an audience.
Long-form improvisation workshops at the The Tickle Pit artistically aim to teach improvisational comedy that encourages strong, diverse characters on stage that are explored truthfully through agreement, intelligence, and support.
