Crush is proud to announce the launch of the Crush Academy, offering regular courses and workshops to the Ottawa improv community.
Join Kevin McDonald of the Kids in the Hall for a one day workshop to learn how to write sketches through improvisation – just like the Kids in the Hall used to do. But not only that! You will do a show that night with Kevin, in front of a real live audience, performing the sketches you wrote that day. Exciting? Kevin thinks so.
First Monday of every month, two teams of 3 battle for audience love!
Kevin McDonald (Kids in the Hall) returns to Ottawa and Arts Court Theatre for one packed night of live comedy. This show will feature Kevin’s latest solo comedy act, plus brand new sketches by budding performers who have spent the day writing and performing with Kevin, plus an improv set: Kevin will play with Ottawa’s comedy sweethearts, Crush Improv.
By focusing on honest and authentic scene work, Brooke offers a 3-hour workshop that concentrates on creating touching moments on stage that go beyond gags and goofiness.
This “how to cheat at improv” course is for anyone looking to try playing in front of a crowd for the first time, or any improviser looking to tone their games muscles.
For anyone looking to take to the stage and perform long form for the first time, or anyone looking to be a better ensemble player.
