The UnForm (Fuck That Shit)
 with Don Fanelli 
Embark on a journey into madness. Learn the form, or lack thereof, of indie nutjobs Fuck That Shit from the group's founder Don Fanelli. A combination of experimental (and possibly uncomfortable exercises), form techniques, and Radical Group Supportâ„¢ will culminate in shows that are unpredictable, unnerving, and unapologetic. Maybe even a complete shit show or two. A fuck that shit show. Although building group trust will be front and center, we will also explore what makes you unique as an improviser and how you can use that to enhance your performance and become a vital asset to any group. 

*Warning: This class might be your greatest challenge as a student to date. Those not willing to get out of their comfort zone and live and die by their teammates need not apply. Failure is inevitable. It's what we will do with that failure that will elevate you as an improviser.

Fuck That Shit (A Comedy Team) was founded in 2010 and won the 2016 and 2017 Cagematch Championships in NYC. Their shows have racked up over 100k views online and they don't understand why.

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #230
