The Harold – Weekend Intensive

Learn the structure of the world’s most famous improv form, the Harold. The Harold was developed in the Chicago improv scene in the ’70s and ’80s and is the secret structure of almost every sitcom to have been produced in the USA, from Seinfeld through to 30 Rock. Described by Bill Murray as “the most important piece of group work since the pyramids.”

Over two days, you will learn the structure of the Harold, how to quickly develop group ideas and how to create a show that builds on itself to make a complete performance. This intensive weekend is a great way for less experienced people to discover more about longform improv, and for experienced players to strengthen their understanding of longform improv.

Missimp Level 1, or comparable experience is required to take part in this intensive weekend.
