Service Description

Liverpool Comedy Improv is delighted to welcome Andel Sudik to Liverpool for a summer intensive course! Every Weds in July, you can access The Second City way of creating sketch comedy developed from improvisation. This is the mainstay of The Second City style, and we cannot be happier to host Andel here in Liverpool to share her exceptional knowledge and experience with you all. (Check out the alumni from Second City - Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Amy Poehler...and more ) Anděl’s deep well of performance experience and her hands on, in depth work within the disciplines of long form improvisation, short form, sketch and theatre make her a thoroughly well-rounded and open minded conduit for art, creation, polish and playfulness. She recognises that the most powerful thing we bring to the table is us. Whatever we are. About the Course: There’s more than one way to skin a cat and there’s even more ways than that to create sketch comedy. In this intensive Anděl will draw on her long experience as an actor, writer and director at The Second City to give you a hands-on experience of what it is like to be in an expedited process, work collaboratively and put on a show. You will learn a brief history, practical application and tools you can use to create sketch material from improvisation again and again whether you are alone or with a group. This workshop is geared to elevate your game while being absolutely accessible and give you the Chicago experience of being an actor, writer, editor and improviser all rolled into one. And it will be fun!
