"Categories" during free improv class

Our free improv workshops have ended for this session, but here's a little glimpse. You would never know these people just met 45 minutes prior. Now they feel comfortable enough to scream "DIE" at each other in this elimination game.

We have a few level one spaces remaining for a class starting this Sunday. We also have a few spaces remaining for "Improv for Anxiety" also starting Sunday. Everything else is sold out!

Overcoming anxiety through improv

FOX 35 Orlando did a piece on our "Improv for Anxiety" program!

Improv for Anxiety is wellness class that uses all the fun of an improv class (but with a lighter touch) to explore how we can better relate to our anxieties. Very proud of the 150+ students who have jumped into this experience over the past 5 years! A new session begins in March and can be found at www.sak.com/anxiety

For some people, anxiety can truly have a negative impact on everyday life. But a local improv comedy theater believes the right amount of laughter can help....

Chris Dinger playing an "awkward boss" in a Slice of Life scene for an audience member last night. Apparently, his interpretation of that is a leather clad, shirtless, game of thrones, cape-wearing man with a horse hair whip and sunglasses. Our host Richard was disgusted enough to penalize him with the scum box to protect the little ones in the audience.

SAK musician asks to play keys with a band he doesn't know at a restaurant

On the way to a private SAK performance in GA, we stopped to get a meal in Valdosta at Mo's Mediterranean Table (awesome food!). Our keys player Ryan asked to sit in with the jazz band playing outside. He was under-dressed, but fit right in.

Congratulations Dwight Stewart ! We are all so proud of you! "Thank you John Connon for a wonderful semester! Level Two at sakcomedylab really challenged me to think on my feet, use my imagination quickly and create a vivid world that continues to build as I live on in the scene. I really feel like my skills in improv have grown and I’m so appreciative to have had you as a teacher to guide me along my journey. I intend to keep ‘yes anding’ on and off stage as bring my new set of tools with me. 🎭 🙏🏾 I already miss all of you!!!" SAK Comedy Lab
