IMPROV 101/201 INTENSIVE will focus on the basics of comedy improvisation: team-building, trust, speed, status, active listening, agreement, and Game of the Scene. You will learn to be fearless and have fun on stage using the DSI approach to improv comedy.

No comedy or theater experience necessary. You must be 17+ to register for this class.

This intensive course runs from 10am until 5pm , Tuesday thru Friday. Friday's class ends early at 4PM to provide a break before the Student Showcase.

THIS IS AN INTENSIVE CLASS — Intensive classes are a great way to get through our training program in a shorter period of time without sacrificing any in-class time.

Instructor: Brandon Holmes

Brandon Holmes

Brandon was first exposed to improv comedy when he tried out for the then-newly-formed troupe at his alma mater, Presbyterian College. He made it! And loved every single minute of it! A member of DSI since the spring of 2011, Brandon has taken classes with Zach Ward, Paula Pazderka, and Jeremy McDonald, as well as workshops with Corey Brown, Rick Andrews, Chet Siegel, and Charna Halpern (legend).

Brandon performs with DSI's Touring Company, Wildcard, and three-man supergroup Black Ops (with Kit FitzSimons and Vinny Valdivia). He also performs with and directs DSI's flagship show MISTER DIPLOMAT, and teaches improv classes at the 101 and 201 levels. Improv has taken him all over the country, to bar mitzvahs and nondenominational lock-ins, block parties and watermelon eating contests, New York City and on top of a bank vault in Kinston, NC (what a night).

Brandon works at Duke. On any given day, you can probably find several hairs from his beloved scrappy junkyard mutt dog, Miso, on his jeans. Brandon loves music, but he's not crazy about podcasts. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Improv 101 is neither particle nor wave but has qualities of both.
