Sea Tea Improv's Indie Team Jam
The INDIE TEAM JAM is a NEW event hosted every month by Sea Tea Improv at Sea Tea Studios.

The Indie Team Jam is not a 'show'. The Indie Team Jam is an opportunity for teams to perform in a supportive environment of other improvisers. Practice that new form you've been working on in rehearsal. Strengthen your group mind. Find your team's voice and style. Work out the kinks in our studio before improvising in front of a paying audience!

Three teams will perform per jam. Submit your team name, cast list, and form to comedy@seateaimprov.com. $10/team to play.

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 class, 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. You'll work in teams, so you'll never be left hanging alone. 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!
