Luke Sorba, host of this year's live online impro show Unmute created 40 instant characters across its 13 half hour episodes. As the co-founder of Spontaneous Combustion and a globally experienced comedy improviser who has worked in the US, Canada and Australia as well as all over the UK he has created thousands more. (And as writer of TV and Radio Sitcoms he has created scores more on top of that.) Some have existed on stage for 24 seconds, others have been sustained for 24 hours.
Whether you prefer long form or short form, working solo or in an ensemble today offers intensive practice creating characters with attitude and impact that inspire you and engage others. We will make use both of quickfire games and multi-scene exercises to give you experience in deepening and widening the range of characters you invent and play opposite.
