The Longest Form: An Introduction to ‘Speed of Life’
Sunday, July 23 | 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
We’ll dip our toes into the purest form of long-form improv, “Speed of Life”, and experience the thrill of following extended narratives out of thin air. This workshop focuses on an organic and authentic approach to improvisation where scenes unfold at ‘life-pace’ and pushes the boundaries of comedy. We’ll build on trusting your instincts, while seamlessly weaving together multiple storylines as you embark on the “longest form”!
All levels welcome.
Did you miss the opportunity to join a course this summer? Are you only able to commit to a few sessions? Then join us for this exciting summer series of beginner and intermediate level improv workshops this June and July. Whether you’re brand new to improv or just looking to keep your tools sharp over the summer, these workshops are designed just for you! Join one or join them all!
Led by Noah Telson, these three-hour sessions will provide a supportive and enjoyable environment for participants of all backgrounds. Come with an open mind and a willingness to embrace the spontaneous spirit within you. Unleash your creativity, connect with fellow improvisers, and let the summer of improv begin!
Noah Telson is the co-founder of CCB and co-director of The CCB Training School and has been improvising comedy throughout Europe and the US for over a decade. He has taught improv for well over 10,000 hours and is even mentioned in two improv books.
“Noah strikes the perfect balance between structure and JFDI. He has such a keen eye and sees EVERYONE without ever making anyone feel exposed. He has this gift of putting everyone at ease, enables us students to GO FOR IT, and has both the group’s as well as the individual’s back. His playfulness and humour are delightful, his creativity is inspiring. And he manages to make everyone feel welcome, lets us know we belong, and creates such a kind, warm and wonderful environment.” – Bettina, Level 1 Student

Have questions? Take a look at our FAQs
Please (pretty please) read the info below or our full FAQs before contacting us! (We’re pretty sure all your questions are answered here).
No. We keep our course and workshop costs low to allow as many students as possible to learn the art & fun of improv. To avoid unnecessary headaches involved in estimating student numbers, keep administrative costs down, and generally be fair to all students and would-be students, we do not offer refunds once a course or workshop registration has been purchased. Please keep this in mind before registering!
No. We don’t offer test classes or auditing, but we encourage prospective students to join our weekly open improv jam and to come to House team shows on Friday nights to get an idea of what we’re doing and who we are. This is a great way to meet us and current and former students, as well as join in the CCB community.
Yes but… we require students to attend at least 6 of the 8 course sessions in order to pass the course and continue taking higher level courses with us. In addition, students may not be more than 15 minutes late to 4 out of 8 classes in order to pass.
The student show offered as part of most courses is not required, but we feel that participating in the show is a fun and rewarding conclusion to the course, so we highly encourage everyone to participate.
If you know you’ll miss more than 2 classes, we strongly recommend you do not register as you’ll simply not get enough out of the course and you’ll be required to retake the course in order to continue taking courses with us.
We do not offer make-up classes for missed classes. Students are added to a Google Group for their course and can message fellow students for notes about missed classes, but please keep in mind that no one is under any obligation to respond.
Sometimes. We allow course prerequisite exemptions on a case by case basis, but please keep in mind that we rarely grant exemptions. We teach a very specific style of long form that is relatively unique in Europe. We lay the foundation for that in our Intro course and we’ve found that students who have received training at other schools that focus on short form ‘impro’, status and narrative are often at a disadvantage when skipping Levels, in addition to slowing down the progress of other students.
Our courses and workshops are capped at 16 students max; some courses and workshops have a lower class size – these will be noted in the event description.
