About this event

Improv Comedy Instructor Christopher Schiavo has over ten years of experience studying and performing improv comedy in Los Angeles, including at the renowned Groundlings Comedy Theatre, a training ground for such comic performers as Will Ferrell, Phil Hartman, and Melissa McCarthy. Chris performed in a long-form improv group in Los Angeles alongside Eric Stonestreet, star of TV’s “Modern Family.” Chris has also performed and coached comedy groups at Improv Olympic West in Hollywood, California. Here in Jacksonville, Chris has taught improv comedy workshops for Florida Blue and improv comedy classes at the University of North Florida, First Coast Technical College, and The Bolles School. Chris is excited to bring improv to the Discovery School. Improv Level 3 Class In this class, students will be building on the understanding and skills acquired in Levels 1 & 2. Students will be taught new improv games that explore in greater depth the areas of character development, relationship, emotion, energy, and commitment. Students will be moving toward a goal of improvising in “open scenes”: improvising without an explicit game framework but rather focusing on being present, staying focused, listening, working together, and looking for patterns or games that occur organically in scenes and heightening and exploring those patterns on stage. The class will culminate with a student improv showcase for friends and family. For more information on upcoming improv classes and workshops, please visit his website at levelupimprov.com.
