“Focus & Fun” Workshop with Josh Simpson
Sep 5 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
"Focus & Fun" Workshop with Josh Simpson

This is a workshop focused on pinning your scenes down so you can have fun blowing them up. Students will work on making big, clear decisions at the top of their scenes to get on the same page with their scene partners. Then, once you and your scene partner are on the same page, we will go over a few techniques you can use to explore your scenes, push your scene partner and surprise yourself and your audience. Improv scenes last for 3 minutes. This workshop is about getting on the same page with your scene partner and having the most amount of fun possible in that short amount of time.

Josh Simpson is a writer, actor and improviser from Los Angeles who performs and teaches at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater. Josh has written for Funny or Die and Conan O’Brien‘s website TeamCoco.com, he’s appeared on Reno 911!, CONAN and Funny or Die presents on HBO. Josh recently finished a short film called “Try Hard: The Rex Derby Story” that is screening at film festivals across the country. He also created the satirical twitter account @BPGlobalPR during the 2010 BP Oil Spill and has recently translated that into a live show called TIFU Public Relations at the UCB Theater. He also does stand up, but eh, you’re probably not too interested in that.
