“The lynchpin for the growing comedy scene in New Orleans”

– NOLA.com

Our improv and sketch classes consist of 8 weekly, 2 hour sessions, and a recital show performed in front of an audience. We have 2 levels of improv classes for $225 each and 2 levels of sketch for $250 each.

After completing the 2 levels of improv or sketch, students are encouraged to enroll in one of our monthly membership programs. Think of it like a gym but for your creative muscles! Basic memberships include one class a week while Prime members enjoy unlimited classes. Both memberships enjoy perks along the way such as free shows. Learn more about becoming a member here.
