A Taste of Improv Workshop

There is no better way to spend a Saturday morning than stepping outside of your comfort zone in a room full of people you have never met!  On Saturday, January 6th, 2018, The StarDome and Positively Funny Improv are offering a "Taste of Improv" workshop to give participants a sampling of what our Improvisation classes are about.  This workshop gives you two hours of laughing and learning.  Learn to step outside of your comfort zone and make a whole new set of friends.

The workshop precedes the next Level 101 Introduction to Improvisation Fundamentals that begins on Saturday, January 13th, 2018.  The Taste of Improv is only $20 and the cost is applied to the $195 tuition cost for the full 6-week class.  Improvisation is a life-changer regardless of your reason for taking it.  Improv is great for public speaking work, jumpstarting your creativity or just having a blast.   Register for the Taste of Improv Workshop by clicking HERE.

The Best Way to Engage Your Team

If your company's productivity has seen better days, or if it's doing well, but could be doing better, it may not be the bottom line you should be looking at. Maybe the improvements you're looking for have nothing to do with bumping the advertising budget or updating your software, maybe it's about the team. That's not so easy to address by moving some numbers around, but at the newly renovated StarDome, it's precisely what we know how to improve.

Stand-Up Comedy Classes at The StarDome

The StarDome is the premier comedy club in America.  With over 34 years of comedy under our belt, we now offer you the opportunity to establish your comedy career.  Our stand-up comedy program for adults (17+) takes students from the fundamentals of comedy writing all the way through creating your own stand-up comedy set. With our supportive instruction, anyone can do stand-up. 

Successful stand-up comedy stems from an engaging, positive and constructive writing environment, where students are encouraged to take risks, explore and communicate what they think is fun about the world.  Comics in our program build confidence in the choices they make, in themselves, and in their creative ideas both on paper and on stage. Our stand-up comedy philosophy is rooted in improvisation and coached by an experienced faculty of performers, writers and working comics.  

Our classes are offered through our partner, Positively Funny Inc.   READ MORE.

What is Improv Comedy?

Improv comedy is fairly new to the Birmingham area.  The StarDome is the only comedy club in Alabama that offers weekly Improv Comedy shows and audiences are flocking to this new phenomena. Improvisation, or improv, is a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue of a game, scene or story are made up in the moment. Often improvisers will take a suggestion from the audience, or draw on some other source of inspiration to get started. Improv is unique in that if you see a performance, that’s it… there will never be another show exactly like it ever done again. Improv is different every time.    READ MORE.
