The UCB Training Center teaches quality comedic scenes focus on one central comedic idea: referred to as "The Game" of the scene.

Students will be taught: 1) identifying "games," 2) heightening - finding new ways to make your scenes get funnier from start to finish, 3) realizing how patterns support the "game," 4) second beats (returning to scenes later in a piece).

This course meets for 8 sessions that are each 3 hours long.

Students will take part in a class performance, generally held at the UCB Theatre.

Students are required to see at least 2 improvised shows at the UCB Theater before the end of the course.

Admission to 301 after the completion of this course is not guaranteed. Students will be judged on their application of concepts that they have learned in Improv 101 & 201. The Training Center will send placement notification to students within 10 days of the Improv 201 graduation performance. Students may not enroll in Improv 301 before receiving this notification.

Class Size: 16 Students

Class meets at UCB Sunset Training Center; Room #233




Mano Agapion, teacher

Mano Agapion Mano Agapion is a comedian from Greensboro, North Carolina. Which is NOT the scariest place in the south... but it might not win any awards either.

He went to UNC - Chapel Hill where he performed improv and sketch at Dirty South Comedy Theater. Nowadays, he performs with UCB House Team, Winslow. If you're like all about social media, you should check out his Instagram called Grindr Diary. But I warn you, it's not for the faint of heart. If you have eagle vision, you might have also seen him briefly on Comedy Bang Bang or Adam Ruins Everything.

Mano wishes to thank the fat Arabic kids from his childhood. Without their love, he'd be nothing.
