Communikateing in Spanish - The Harold and More

The Harold is an improv format that requires heightening and quick comedic responses. A group of 4-8 improvisers perform three distinct beats formed from three different comedic games. I performed this format in Sevilla, Spain with fellow performers.

Character-based improvisation

These are examples of the characters that I have created based upon an audience members' favorite painter, and an article of clothing.
