Online improv is better than epazote.
Flat Improv - Online improv classes, jams, livestreams
Dear really cool improv friends,

The year is under way and lots of things have started or are about to start. What, you say? Well... that's what this newsletter is here for. Sorry I missed last week's newsletter, but it was for reasons that I end up utilizing in my most recent podcast on improv details, observations and connections. Check that out here for the justification.

Before we get started!

If you want to go to the Thursday 9am PT jam, register ASAP! It's free but we need your name in asap. Thanks!

Check out the WNIS show on Thursday at 6:30pm PT LIVE (on Twitch) if you want to engage with an improv show and have your comments put up on the screen. We're testing it out and need YOUR help! We're also about to start lining up some guests, so if that should be you contact us on the same page. ALL DETAILS (and past eps) HERE!

Podcasts & Articles

More episodes of the Neurodiversity & Improv podcast are up on my Substack. Remember that these episodes are relevant to all improvisers regardless of neurotype.

Details: Have you had an issue being the voice of reason in scenes? Grounding a scene? This episode discusses what's "normal", weird, and how it can mess with our heads and scenes.

Two more episodes out of the World's Nerdiest Improv Show (WNIS) (weenis) with Katrina Charles. This show is hosted in a fully custom immersive environment, and we make some ads that roll in the middle.

We did a guest spot with Jace Spam recently! You can watch that show here. We DID IMPROV for this one. Actual honest to goodness improv (an improvised podcast monoscene to be exact.) 

Find episodes 4 (Butternut Mint Soup) and 5 (Tomato Cumin Soup) here!

The following graphic says January but ITS THE SAME FOR FEBRUARY! It says Jan because I haven't made the Feb one yet. So ... GET READY FOR... a new image. Yeah, I oversold it right there.

Remember to support the schools/orgs who host any free jams (etc) you attend by going to the odd class at the school or with the host. Supporting their work keeps the jams running and/or free!

Obligatory facts section

Some bands fall apart. But not all of them. I found out something surprising is that in the year 2024 there will be festivals featuring bands like Sum 41, Yellowcard performing after awhile. And another band that plans to both perform alongside of them and release new music? That's right. You got it. Hoobastank.
