Improv Workshop with Jonathan Browning



Jonathan has been teaching improvisation for over twenty years in Chicago (UCB, Annoyance, Midnight Circus, Comedy Sportz Chicago) and Los Angeles (Original LA Harold Team, IO West, Second City Hollywood).  He is also an actor, writer (stage, film, and TV), and awarding winning filmmaker who brings the essential qualities of improvisation to every aspect of his work.  He believes improvisation is an art form that not only has the ability to transform performers’ abilities as artists, but also has the power to transform lives as well.



Improv For Actors

In this class, students will practice how to utilize improv to unlock depth, spontaneity and playfulness in both dramatic and comedic roles. In its purest form, Improvisation is a tool to explore character, status and environment.  It allows the players to feel completely comfortable in their own skin allowing them to explore every possibility without internal or external judgment.  It is not about making an audience laugh– it’s about making the participants unified, stronger and braver.

These classes are designed specifically for current and past students of The Manhattan Actor Studio.  Each class is built to enhance and deepen the work students have been doing with Billy.   The goal is to do honest work in a safe and creative environment.
