Support Moves with Brian Hines

Did you know there is a band that produced more number ones hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis Presley and the Beatles combined? The Funk Brothers are a group of studio musicians who performed on Motown records from 1959 to 1972. Without their music and support there is no way we would be singing "My Girl" in the shower this many years later.

Improv has the same need for support!!! Is a scene stuck? A support move can unstick it! Are your teammates a little confused on the game of a scene? A support move can clarify and simplify a murky game! Maybe your scene needs scenery, sound effects, or even special effects! SUPPORT MOVES TO THE RESCUE!

This workshop will focus on identifying when a support move can help a scene without stealing focus. We will learn different types of support moves, how to perform these moves and (maybe most importantly) how to get out of the scene without disruption. Support moves can be the most fun and exciting parts of improv scenes. Come join us and learn how to support your scene partners!

Each One, Teach One - Stand-Up Comedy with Rob Santos

Rob Santos will guide students through writing exercises, stage presence, building trust, and providing constructive feedback to help students think critically about their material and build a better set. Each student will receive a personalized coaching session with Rob, 1 on 1 to further discuss their material for the class share.

At the end of the six sessions, students will perform their sets in a special showcase at Sea Tea Comedy Theater.

About the Instructor: Rob Santos is a stand-up comedian out of Hartford, CT. Rob has performed in New York City, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Western Massachusetts. His style is laid back but packed with energy and silliness to keep the crowd going. Rob's deep, raw, and humorous perspective comes from years of searching for his identity within race, culture, and fatherhood. "I'm just a beige man trying to be a black man in a white man's world."

Asking For A Friend with Chion Wolf
Saturday, July 28 at 7:00 PM

Asking For A Friend with Chion Wolf

Asking For A Friend is a live advice* show at Sea Tea Improv's underground comedy theater for curious people with a sense of humor.

Write down your problem, put it in the big red box, and host Chion Wolf (WNPR, The Mouth-Off at The Mark Twain House & Museum, the Hartford Hot Several, Night Fall) will help you figure it all out with her panel of unqualified yet enthusiastic, thoughtful humans.

At the end of the night, Chion picks one audience volunteer randomly who gets a free pair of tickets to next month’s show, and the grand finale is a Reading of Confessions.

Very mature children are invited, and immature adults welcomed, profanity likely.

The audio of each show will be recorded live and released later as a podcast, so if you don't want your snorting laughter or gasps of realizations broadcast to the whole world, please bring your highly-effective muffling techniques.

Asking For A Friend is on the Twitters: @AskinFerAFriend

Asking For A Friend is on the Instagrams: @askingforafriendwithchionwolf

Asking For A Friend is on the emails: Askingforafriendwithchionwolf@gmail.com

*DISCLAIMER: This is NOT professional advice! These are people discussing all sorts of problems, telling stories, and exploring philosophical conundrums.

If you're struggling in this chaotic, cruel, funny, absurd, amazing world, and you need someone to talk to, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.

What's cool is that you don't have to be suicidal to call them. You don't need to be at your lowest point to find help. You are NOT alone, and you’re always welcome at Sea Tea.

Asking For A Friend with Chion Wolf
Saturday, August 18 at 7:00 PM

Asking For A Friend with Chion Wolf

Asking For A Friend is a live advice* show at Sea Tea Improv's underground comedy theater for curious people with a sense of humor.

Write down your problem, put it in the big red box, and host Chion Wolf (WNPR, The Mouth-Off at The Mark Twain House & Museum, the Hartford Hot Several, Night Fall) will help you figure it all out with her panel of unqualified yet enthusiastic, thoughtful humans.

At the end of the night, Chion picks one audience volunteer randomly who gets a free pair of tickets to next month’s show, and the grand finale is a Reading of Confessions.

Very mature children are invited, and immature adults welcomed, profanity likely.

The audio of each show will be recorded live and released later as a podcast, so if you don't want your snorting laughter or gasps of realizations broadcast to the whole world, please bring your highly-effective muffling techniques.

Asking For A Friend is on the Twitters: @AskinFerAFriend

Asking For A Friend is on the Instagrams: @askingforafriendwithchionwolf

Asking For A Friend is on the emails: Askingforafriendwithchionwolf@gmail.com

*DISCLAIMER: This is NOT professional advice! These are people discussing all sorts of problems, telling stories, and exploring philosophical conundrums.

If you're struggling in this chaotic, cruel, funny, absurd, amazing world, and you need someone to talk to, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.

What's cool is that you don't have to be suicidal to call them. You don't need to be at your lowest point to find help. You are NOT alone, and you’re always welcome at Sea Tea.
