The CCB Training School offers instruction in a wide range of improv & sketch comedy.

Our courses and workshops provide a safe, fun, and nurturing space for students to explore their inner creative side and, of course, discover their comedic selves.

We provide an alternative voice for improv in the German “Hauptstadt,” borrowing our philosophy from Del Close and the North American approach. We teach trust, support and truth. And we believe Germans can be funny.

Instruction is offered in native English and German for students spanning all experience levels. Our instructors have a wealth of experience and have trained with UCB, CSz, iO, L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq, NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and more importantly, have formed their own ethos right here in Berlin.

All courses end with a student show to demonstrate everything you’ve learned. We train students for the stage and it is our promise to make you “performance ready” by the end of the course. Questions? We’ve got answers!

Testimonials

I had Noah for my 101 Improv Basics class. This was the most fun I’ve had as an adult taking a ‘class’ ever. I overcame my fear of the stage, and gained more confidence and tools to utilize in my life and career.Megan Lillick
Josh is a fantastic improvisation teacher[…] his passion for the art shines through. He is deeply chilled and has the knack for creating a space in which we were always challenged to push our boundaries in learning and playing, yet felt safe while doing so. Most impressively, he strikes perfectly the difficult balance between providing enough structure and discipline to teach and show the features of the form, and giving the space and freedom to experiment and explore.Ben McGuire
I began my first ‘Truth of the Scene’ class with Noah highly jittery, muttering the words ‘I am nervous because I am very bad at Improv.’ Now I managed to change it to: ‘I am nervous but I am also having the time of my life!'[…] It was the best part of my week. Noah is a fantastic teacher and made sure we had a good understanding of the syllabus, with video and audio assignments. He possesses a great clarity and articulation in his teaching style and class structure, with exercises that are challenging, fun, and illuminating.Kanchi Thangadurai
