Class Description

The Blackout is long form with a theatrical feel. No side lines. No edits. No tagouts. Just good scene work, and lots of it, with a focus on simplicity and realism. If you're tired of feeling like you need to scream to be heard in your improv, then this is the class for you. Prerequisite: Magnet Improv Level Three
All students will be asked to show proof of vaccination prior to the first session in order to participate in this class

Instructor: Louis Kornfeld

Louis Kornfeld began improvising way back in 2003, when both his phone and online presence were at the forefront of millennium culture. He's been a proud member of the Magnet Theater since it opened its doors, having logged countless hours as a performer, intern, house manager, member of 'The Boss,' Megawatt director, and (for the past fifteen years) teacher of improvisation. What can he say? He loves it.

In addition to improv, Louis is also an award winning writer and actor whose work is routinely featured on 'The Truth' podcast. Check it out, why don't you?

You can see him performing every Sunday night with the great Rick Andrews in 'Kornfeld & Andrews.' They have some short videos online you might enjoy.

He thinks you're doing great.
