Improvisation provides an excellent background to stand-up comedy and vice-versa. It is not as different as one might think. The role of this workshop is to encourage improvisers confidence in their own unique artistic voice and try something new and exciting in a safe classroom environment. Your improve skills will only improve from a stab at stand-up and your mind and creativity will be stimulated. And that, is always a cool thing.

Brently Heilbron started performing improv in clubs at 14. Then at 15, he took the leap to stand-up, keeping up his improvisational chops with early Austin troupes like Monks Night Out and Only 90% Effective. He won the first ever Maestro show in Austin, which is now the longest running show Improv show in town.
He was voted Best Stand-Up in Austin by the Austin Chronicle and as a comedian and actor, he has opened for Paul McCartney, toured with Robert Schimmel and was hand-picked by Woody Allen to appear in the Los Angeles Opera production of GIANNI SCHICCHI. He also appeared on the Bravo improvised television series SIGNIFICANT OTHERS as well as FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS on NBC and THE LYING GAME on ABC Family. His verbatim performance of R. Kelly's Trapped in the Closet in its entirety brought attention from the Los Angeles Times and New York Times among others.
