Showcase!

Our shortform improv show!

Similar to “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, we take tons of suggestions from the audience and use them (and a few audience volunteers here and there) in a variety of scenes, songs, and competitive games made up right on the spot!

Come see the show and have dinner, drinks & dessert while you watch — City Steam brews their own beers right on the premises.

This is our first and longest-running show — we’ve performed over 50 monthly shows at City Steam since 2009.

Our longform improv show!

We bring the big-city style improv of New York, Chicago, Boston & LA to life in Hartford!

We’ll take a single suggestion of a word, phrase, or title, get inspired by improvised stories from celebrity guests, or interview audience members to create a 25-40 minute improvised comedy with different scenes, themes & characters!

The showcase features Sea Tea Improv’s show AND other performances by invited groups & mixed improvisers from all over, for a big fun festival-style show!

In this newest addition to our monthly shows, we put on special one-time or experimental comedy shows that may not even be improv!

We’ve done improvised musicals, a special show for kids & families, a sketch comedy show with live music similar to SNL, a show where the improv groups swapped members, and a show with new one-off groups that were no bigger than 3 members each!

These shows are where we do something truly unique — don’t miss a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Improv Open Mic *AND* Mixer!
https://www.facebook.com/events/146168482174262/

On Friday, June 8th at 8PM at the Hole in the Wall Theater, Sea Tea Improv will host an Improv Open Mic *AND* Improv Mixer!

$5 | BYOB
All proceeds go to support the Hole in the Wall, a community theater.

-- What the heck is this thing? --
This is a chance for anyone to come watch & participate in improv comedy in two fun ways!

- Improv Open Mic -
We're encouraging established improv groups to come sign up for 5 to 15 minute slots to perform short form games or short longforms! Try something experimental! Play your favorite games! Form a one-off group for the night! Get some work in with your team in front of an audience!

- Improv Mixer -
In between the open mic slots, we'll be doing mixed improv scenes just like the ones at VLAD the IMPROV-er's Connecticut Improv Mixers! Put your name on the list, and you'll be randomly paired with another improvisor of a complementary level to do a short improv scene! Whether you come alone or with a group for the open mic, you can put your name in for mixer scenes!

- Can I just watch? -
Well, yeah, sure... you can just watch. But we definitely encourage you to try it out! Even if you've never done improv before, we can pair you with an expert who will bend over backwards to make you look good. Sea Tea Improv and the CT improv community is a very supportive environment, and we all know that no one's perfect, and no one's good all the time.

Let us know if you have any questions!

Sea Tea Improv Presents an ImprovBoston Workshop with Will Luera
Sea Tea Improv is bringing Will Luera, the artistic director of ImprovBoston, to Hartford to teach a workshop on a longform improv style known as "Close Quarters" at TheaterWorks (233 Pearl Street, Hartford, CT) on Saturday, July 28th from 11AM to 2PM.

The members of Sea Tea Improv are taking this workshop, and we've got just 9 additional spots to fill, so we're telling Hartford-area improvisers about this great opportunity to join Sea Tea Improv for a workshop with this great instructor!

The cost of this workshop is $47 per person. For reference, a 3-hour workshop at ImprovBoston is $65 per person, but Sea Tea is using part of a grant from the City of Hartford that we got to bring outside improv instruction to Hartford to help cover some of the cost for CT improvisers!

There are only 9 spots, and since this is coming up very soon, the only fast and fair way we can think to offer these spots is first-come-first-served via a PayPal payment. (Note: you do not need PayPal account to pay via PayPal: you will see an option that says "Don't have a PayPal account? Pay with your debit or credit card as a PayPal guest.")

Physical Improv (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructor: Kate Sidley
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Say goodbye to talking heads! This workshop is designed to get improvisers relaxed and comfortable with being physically active on stage. Create a realistic subway car, dive off Niagra Falls, be a gnarled tree, and get swept up in a tornado. This class will give you the tools you need to create dynamic and active environments on stage while working physically and safely with other improvisers. You don’t need to be an athlete or contortionist to be physical in improv, but with the support of your team and some basic skills, you’ll have an audience applauding your every feat. Students should come prepared to move.

Instructors: Vladimir John Perez & Dan Russell
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Sea Tea Improv’s Vlad & Dan will school you on what it takes to bring the ruckus to all you improv lovers.

Learn to support your fellow improv rappers with beatboxing, and learn to listen to your “opponent” to dis back hard. Create a hip-hop persona that’s larger than life, but true to your steez. By the end, you’ll be selling bad rhymes, setting up easy ones, and finding the awesome connections that come when you’ve got no choice but to try to rhyme on the spot. True “Yes And” ain’t nothing to f**k wit!

Build-A-Character (SOLD OUT!) (Summer Improv Workshop Series)
Instructor: Julia Pistell
Cost: $35, $30 for college students

Southern belles, sarcastic bellhops, and suspicious busboys-- we all know a well-drawn character when we see one. But how do you build them in the heat of the improv moment?
Veteran Sea Tea Improviser Julia Pistell will guide you through the process of creating a character within an improv scene without undermining the integrity of your story. Using your particular strengths, you'll create at least three characters that you can play with for the rest of your improv days. We'll work with point of view, philosophy, and physicality to create characters that last for much longer than a single laugh. We promise: a character is a lot more than a silly voice or an impression. Come and meet your other selves!

Improv for Beginners workshop
Improv is for everyone. Whether you've got dreams of being a comedian, or you want to strengthen your public speaking skills, or you're just sick of your board game collection, improv can help. In this one-day workshop, Sea Tea Improv will introduce the basic techniques and games that professional improvisers and comedy writers use to collaboratively discover fun ideas, characters, and scenes. Our number one rule is "make your partner look good," so come try improv in a supportive, no-pressure environment, and learn from a professional improviser. Our course instructors have graduated from the premier comedy schools in the northeast, including New York City's Upright Citizens Brigade, and ImprovBoston.

Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We will keep track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total toward everyone's personal goal of 100 completed Harolds.

We'll be doing this on Thursdays for the rest of 2012, and moving to Wednesdays at 8PM starting in January.

Who will be first to reach 100 Harolds completed?

8-Week Improv Course "The Set List" begins!
The Set List (Focus Level Course in Short Form Improv)
Instructor: Julia Pistell
Cost: $199
Monday evenings from
6:30PM to 9:30PM

So: you know the rules, but does that make you a great quarterback? Or do you feel like you’re constantly on the JV short form team?

In “The Set List,” instructor Julia Pistell will teach you how to play the games you know (and many you don’t) to the very best of your ability. Root out the games within the game, and play to the top of your intelligence no matter if you’re speaking in gibberish, mime, poorly translated Russian, or alphabetical order. We’ll apply advanced scenework techniques to simple games to find the perfect blend of short-form styles and practical theatrical concerns (is there conflict? How’s your stage presence looking?). Make bolder choices, do better scenes, and walk away with a greater understanding of how to have the most fun while using the best part of your brain. Lots of personal feedback in every class. Bring your own strengths and style to short-form games: that’s the goal.

Julia Pistell has co-starred in almost 40 consecutive monthly short-form shows at City Steam Brewery’s Brew-Ha-Ha Comedy Club, as well as over 100 other improv shows with Sea Tea Improv. She is trained by the Upright Citizens Brigade, ImprovBoston, the PIT’s Ali Faranakien, the Hartford Stage, and more. She has been teaching improv for many years, including her current posts at Sea Tea Improv and the Hartford Children’s Theater. Julia also improvises her way through a nationally popular podcast, Literary Disco, and a career in Public Relations and Event Planning at the Mark Twain House & Museum.

Prerequisite: Completion of two “Foundation” level courses (The Scene, The Game, The Character), or completion of one Foundation course & concurrent enrollment in a Foundation course, or permission from Sea Tea Improv.

Class dates:
Monday, January 14
Monday, January 21
Monday, January 28
Monday, February 4
Monday, February 11
Monday, February 18
Monday, February 25
Monday, March 4 (Share from 9PM – 9:30PM)

This course is one of Sea Tea Improv’s 2 “Focus” level adult improv courses: this course, focused on shortform improvisation, and “The Second Beat” (last offered in Fall 2012), focused on longform improvisation.

This course is limited to 16 students.

Love is patient, love is kind... love makes bold choices and says "yes, and!"

If you're looking for a unique romantic experience this Valentine's Day, look no further-- come to Sea Tea Improv Studios and learn all about spontaneous fun with your date. In this workshop designed for couples of all kinds (first dates or fifty years married, we don't care!), we'll show you how improvisational games can reinforce good communication, listening, flexibility, and most importantly, a sense of humor. Even if you've never improvised before, this workshop will be a blast and give you an experience you'll laugh about together for Valentine's days to come.

And who will be teaching this workshop de l'amour? Two of the co-founders of Sea Tea Improv, Greg Ludovici and Julia Pistell, who have been dating for a decade. Greg and Julia have found great joy and humility in laughing at each other every week, and they can't wait to share that with you. And we promise there won't be massive Shakespearean misunderstandings in which we accidentally poison ourselves at the end of the workshop-- we're more romantic than that, Romeo!

Instructors: Julia Pistell & Greg Ludovici

6:30PM to 8PM

It's a great way to start your night before dinner in Downtown Hartford!

Hanging with Harold - Weekly Drop-In Jam
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a learn-by-doing drop-in jam where Sea Tea Improv and members of the improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) perform a kind of longform improv together known as the Harold.

"You'll have to do about a hundred Harolds to start feeling comfortable with the form." - Matt Besser, founding member of the Upright Citizens Brigade

We will keep track of the cumulative number of Harolds done by each participant from week to week. Each week, we will do 1, 2 or 3 Harolds (time depending), and everyone who participates will add to their Harold total toward everyone's personal goal of 100 completed Harolds.

Who will be first to reach 100 Harolds completed?
