No Sleep Show - Stand-Up After an All-Nighter

Six stand-up comedians awake for 24+ hours is a dumb idea. And we're going to put it on stage.

These comedians have agreed to hang out for a night, write jokes and force each other to stay awake until showtime. That's right they've agreed to...

NO SLEEP TILL
The No Sleep Show!

Will they be cranky?

  • Probably. 

Will they be sick of each other?

  • Yes.

Will it be funny?

  • Yes, for the audience.
  • Not for the comics.

If you're an insomniac or just like seeing folks completely remove the minimal amount of filtering they normally have through exhaustion, then this is the show for you.

Featuring: Cait Allen, Brian Barganier, Giancarlo Biondino, Jimmy Blair, Laura Manasewich, and Mo Mussa

Host: B.J. Quagan

Improv 302 - The Set List (Intensive)

Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In “The Set List,” Sea Tea Improv 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.

Focuses will include improvising in language that isn't your own (Early Modern English), committing to dramatic and poetic flourishes, exploiting genre and narrative tropes for comedic effect, and giving voice to the interior lives of the clowns, kings, and starcrossed lovers who populate the canon.

Stage Presence with Julia Pistell

The great improviser Jason Mantzoukas once said, "80% of Improv is owning the stage." He's right-- no matter how good your ideas are, you need to conduct yourself onstage with the confidence and presence of a professional actor, from the moment you enter the stage to the moment you exit. In this workshop you will receive NO feedback on your ideas, characters, games, or jokes. We will explore and drill, with lots of personal feedback: using your voice, body, and movements to command the stage. We'll work on hosting, being on the back line, and stage presence in scenes. Everyone will receive personal feedback on their mindless habits, their projected attitudes, and anything else we discover about your personal stage presence. Come kick your performance to the next level.

Support Moves with Brian Hines

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!

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 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.
