Five weeks of workshops with accomplished actor and improvisor Denny Siegel.

Denny Siegel is a veteran of such TV shows as “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and “Whose Line is it Anyway?”, and has taught at Chicago City Limits in NYC and at Bang, Cold Tofu and Theatre 68 in LA. Her classes focus on improvised scene work with an emphasis on emotional authenticity. She encourages spontaneity and trust as she gently guides her students out of their comfort zones and into deeper, more believable character choices. She believes that high stakes and grounded relationships are the bedrock of comedy and drama, drawing in audiences and elevating our work as actors.
