THE KERFUFFLE

The Kerfuffle came from the imaginations of Jackie Arko, Hannah Foell, and Casey Malone—it's a blind-booked vaudeville variety show de jour that began in 2012 and features a mix of sketch, interactive, and completely undefinable comedy from the minds of Boston's funniest comedians.

Thursdays at 6:30PM

Starting 3/19

Mess + Finesse, Somerville

Union Comedy's entry-level course introduces students to the skills and techniques that are most essential to a successful longform improv scene. Students will learn the value of making decisive and active choices, embracing and utilizing the choices of their scene partners, and working together to create something fun, funny, and unique out of practically nothing. No prior experience necessary.

LEVEL 2

Scene development

Saturdays at 11AM,

Starting 3/21

Mess + Finesse,

Somerville

The second course in our core curriculum takes a more focused look at 2-person scenes with an emphasis on character. Students will learn how to make instinctive choices, unpack information, and define their character's worldview. This is supported by exploring comedic ideas through tags and expanding patterns to create satisfying scenic montages.
