Improv is one of my major avocations. I started taking classes in 1989, and ultimately took over as instructor of the workshop sometime around 1995. That workshop has now evolved into the Santa Barbara Improv Workshop and continues to conduct a class on Wednesday nights.
I’m the primary instructor at the workshop and also a member of the performing troupe Caught in the Act. That group has been performing since New Years Eve of the Milleneum Celebrations in Santa Barbara (2000). Although many of the members have changed over the years, the same 4 core members are still involved. We now perform just about every other month in Santa Barbara.
Lately, I’ve been blogging about improv. Although the primary focus is the Santa Barbara improv scene, I’ve been adding more and more posts of interest to beginning improvisors.
