Class Description: In this three week class with retired improv elder Alex Berg, we'll focus on three fundamental principles of improv: Following The Rules, Making Mistakes, and Breaking The Rules. The goal here is twofold- the first to be a deep appreciation for the rules that goes beyond mere pedantry, and the second is to talk about how fucking cool Italy is (or was? Berg does not claim to be up to date on current events in Tuscany).
Teacher: Alex Berg

About Alex Berg: Alex Berg grew up in Connecticut, where there's not much to do besides climb trees and read Calvin & Hobbes. Shortly after getting a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Vassar College, he threw a pair of cargo shorts and a few t-shirts into a duffel bag and drove out to LA. Now, Alex spends the bulk of his waking hours writing, acting, and improvising. Currently, he performs with UCB house teams Sentimental Lady and Convoy, and can frequently be seen prowling around backstage hoping to sit in with other shows as well. Occasionally, he shows up on television, in shows like Terriers, Reno! 911, and MANswers. Recently, he played a naked old lady in Hell Baby (Sundance 2013) and a post apocalyptic hipster in Best Friends Forever (Slamdance 2013). Beyond all that, he's a huge science nerd and a bit unkempt. Deal with it.
