Online Improv Sure Is Great, amirite?
Flat Improv - Online improv classes, jams, livestreams

Hello improv friends!

Online improv. We do it. We like it. There's a lot of it! Yay! It's good for your mind, it connects you to a community, and you can learn skills you can transfer to stage improv, other forms of performance, dog training, making videos, your mundane work, inner speech is more entertaining, buying groceries, making podcasts, whatever.


Speaking of which...


I'm doing a damn podcast, solo. Now that I've produced 10 episodes (well, almost, number 10 in progress), I guess it's time to say something about it in the newsletter. It's about driving to LA to attend a Dining Room Chairs Event that ... doesn't seem to be happening. It's a bit that has been going on way too long, and now it's a podcast.


I talk to myself and do the voices. You can listen to my it-might-be-a-midlife-thing-question-mark here (or subscribe to Dining Room Chairs Event "wherever you find podcasts" ... that's what they say, right?). I get philosophical and stuff. Episodes start as she's trying to do a comedy but they don't end that way.


Changes to improv calendar!

I have a new thing in development. It's gonna be a bit less streamlined, but easier for YOU to add things. You'll be able to submit content if you want to, say, promote your coaching or school on a page. And you'll be able to dump a class into a calendar still and even mark it as recurring.

Stay tuned. Like next newsletter tuned, I should have it done by then.

For now, you can always reply to this email or use the contact page.
