Helmed by Steve Wilder, owner and artistic director of the Voodoo, and Jill Bradford, executive producer of the Voodoo, this is your chance to polish up your improvisational skills without a long-term commitment. Come as often or as little as you like!
Monday Nights With Steve Wilder

He has performed with and studied under Michael Pollock, the musical director of Second City Los Angeles and the premier improv accompanist in the country, and Shulie Cowen, the founder and director of Opening Night: The Improvised Musical in Hollywood. Stephen has had the pleasure of performing and teaching at the Los Angeles Improv Festival; the New York Musical Improv Festival; the New York Improv Festival; the Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas; the Montreal Improv Festival; the Duke City Improv Festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico; and the Denver Improv Festival and Colorado Improv Festival.
Tuesday Nights With Jill Bradford
This drop-in class is for ALL LEVELS of experience, from absolute beginner to seasoned pro. We will work through different concepts in every class, ranging from small scenes to group work and everything in between. Jump in and let’s have some fun!
Jill Bradford has been onstage since the ripe age of 9. After studying theater in college and doing straight dramatic plays, musicals, and short form improv for over 25 years, she decided to experiment with long form improv. After graduating from the Grafenberg Playschool, that “experiment” has now been in process for nearly 3 years. Jill firmly believes that the study of improv is just that: an evolving process. She also believes that toe cleavage is disgusting and that bike riding makes people better.
Neil Gaiman wrote, “The rules on what is possible and impossible in the arts were made by people who had not tested the bounds of the possible by going beyond them.” Visit the Voodoo on Tuesday nights and let improv help test your bounds!
