Nick Armstrong Workshop – It’s Not About Being Funny, So Stop Trying!

Saturday, July 15, 2017

All instructors at the Unscrewed Theater Training Center have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. For the safety of our volunteers and community, in-person students are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

Read the full policy.

In this workshop, improvisers delve into character and well-grounded scenes focusing on the situation being funny and not the improviser shelling out one liners and jokes. You’ll learn to trust the characters you’re playing, that the work you’re doing is good enough, and not relying on punch lines and call outs.

Unscrewed Theater is located across the street from The Loft Cinema, next to Fronimo’s Greek Restaurant. The parking lot and entrance are located in the rear of the building. Turn in to the Walgreen’s parking lot just east of Country Club, and go to the left between the buildings to find our entrance.

Unscrewed Theater is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching, performing, and producing all forms of live improvisational theater in Tucson, AZ.
