Hanging with Harold (Drop-In Event)
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a "learn by doing" drop-in event where Sea Tea Improv Studios students, Sea Tea Comedy Theater performers, and members of the Connecticut improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) practice a kind of longform improv comedy together known as the Harold. Learn more about the Harold here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_(improvisation)

"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 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. Can you reach 100 completed Harolds?

Just $5 per person via cash at the door, Venmo (@seateaimprov), or PayPal (comedy@seateaimprov.com).

MCQUEEN (Funny or Die & Comedy Central)
Fresh off a tour with Funny or Die and creator of the new Comedy Central Snapchat series “Heads Will Roll” McQueen Adams has taken his world of impressions, music, and comedy in a fresh and innovative direction, creating a hi-tech audio- visual universe.

His new show "SAN PEDRO" incorporates his improvisational skills with the music of groups such as Daft Punk and Coldplay, voices both real and fictional, including Gandalf, his Mom’s Cat and Jason Statham, and plenty of original bizarre inhabitants. Adams is master of this mashup of songs,voices, and sketches that Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has called “just brilliant”.

Davey Pierce from Of Montreal/Yip Deceiver is the backing band.

What's Your Problem? with Chion Wolf - Episode 5
What's Your Problem? 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 and/or confession ANONYMOUSLY, put it in the big box, and then host Chion Wolf (WNPR, The Mouth at The Mark Twain House & Museum, the Hartford Hot Several Brass Band, Night Fall) will help you figure it all out with her panel of unqualified yet enthusiastic, thoughtful humans. For every problem, a new audience volunteer is chosen! At the end of the night, Chion reads your confessions.

Tickets: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/whats-your-problem-with-chion-wolf-episode-5-tickets-34893274724

Very mature children are invited, and immature adults appreciated. 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, you'd better bring your effective muffling techniques.

What's Your Problem? is on the Twitters: https://twitter.com/yerproblem/

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.

Hanging with Harold (Drop-In Event)
Hanging with Harold is not a class or a workshop. It's not a show, either. It's a "learn by doing" drop-in event where Sea Tea Improv Studios students, Sea Tea Comedy Theater performers, and members of the Connecticut improv community (that's you, just by showing up!) practice a kind of longform improv comedy together known as the Harold. Learn more about the Harold here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_(improvisation)

"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 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. Can you reach 100 completed Harolds?

Just $5 per person via cash at the door, Venmo (@seateaimprov), or PayPal (comedy@seateaimprov.com).
