Ever want to know how to break into improv comedy? Here’s your chance to learn about this form of acting, which is all the rage right now and a valuable skill for performers across any genre.

Join SAG-AFTRA on Tues, Aug 19 as they are joined by members of the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) here to walk you through some comedy basics with a few interactive demonstrations that will be sure to tickle the funny bone. 

UCB's world-class instructors use improv and storytelling as a lens through which to train a wide range of professional skills – focusing on creative collaboration, better communication, active listening, brainstorming, presentational skills, and more, while generally improving participants’ abilities to think on their feet. 

Get ready to get your giggle on! This livestream is hosted by SAG-AFTRA’s President's Task Force on Education, Outreach & Engagement.
