Rich will be joining us for 3 workshops: a two-day Sketch Comedy Intensive & two 3-hour Improv Workshops. You can sign up for the Sketch Intensive as a whole and the Improv Workshops individually. Max capacity for each is 16 students. If one of them sells out, we’ll open spots for auditing (ie watching only).
