Storytelling Boot Camp with Carly Ann Filbin

Saturday, June 4, 2022 | 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Take your personal experiences and turn them into an entertaining, engaging, and funny performance! In this workshop, we’ll explore speed drills, memory mining, and the basic elements of storytelling and solo performance. Whether you want to produce your own solo show, add more narrative elements to your stand-up, or simply get better at telling a good story or public speaking – this workshop will teach you how to turn ANYTHING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO YOU into brilliant works of art.

Because notes are personalized, all levels are welcome.

No previous writing experience required.

Carly Ann Filbin

Carly created Let Me Break You Up: An Anti-Dating Game Show, which was performed monthly in NYC at UCB, Le Poisson Rouge, Littlefield and the New York Comedy Festival, as well as toured and tortured the country. Optioned by TruTV, and produced by Cowboy Bear Ninja.

Carly also performs the monthly, sold-out matchmaking show Young, Hot, Sluts. In addition to performing in sketch, improv, stand-up and gameshows, this passable natural blonde has written and performed multiple longform storytelling shows including Validate Me (UCB, Cincinnati Fringe), This Doesn’t Mean I’m Your Boyfriend, (UCB, Philadelphia Improv Theatre, Carnegie Stage) and Coke Ass (UCB).

Carly started storytelling as a touring cast member of Awkward Sex…and the City, a comedy show that played such venues as Zanies Nashville, Laugh Boston, and Black Cat DC.

Questions? Concerns?
Please (pretty please) read the info below or our full FAQs before contacting us! (We're pretty sure all your questions are answered here).

Can I get a refund after registering?

No. We keep our course and workshop costs low to allow as many students as possible to learn the art & fun of improv. To avoid unnecessary headaches involved in estimating student numbers, keep administrative costs down, and generally be fair to all students and would-be students, we do not offer refunds once a course or workshop registration has been purchased. Please keep this in mind before registering!

Can I test a class before joining?

No. We don’t offer test classes or auditing, but we encourage prospective students to join our weekly open improv jam and to come to House team shows on Friday nights to get an idea of what we’re doing and who we are. This is a great way to meet us and current and former students, as well as join in the CCB community.

I'm going to miss some classes or the student show… Can I still register?

Yes but... we require students to attend at least 6 of the 8 course sessions in order to pass the course and continue taking higher level courses with us. In addition, students may not be more than 15 minutes late to 4 out of 8 classes in order to pass.

We do not offer make-up classes for missed classes. Students are added to a Google Group for their course and can message fellow students for notes about missed classes, but please keep in mind that no one is under any obligation to respond.

The student show offered as part of most courses is not required, but we feel that participating in the show is a fun and rewarding conclusion to the course, so we highly encourage everyone to participate.

If you know you'll miss more than 2 classes, we strongly recommend you do not register as you'll simply not get enough out of the course and you'll be required to retake the course in order to continue taking courses with us.

I’m an experienced improviser, can I skip ahead?

Sometimes. We allow course prerequisite exemptions on a case by case basis, but please keep in mind that we rarely grant exemptions. We teach a very specific style of long form that is relatively unique in Europe. We lay the foundation for that in our Intro course and we've found that students who have received training at other schools that focus on short form 'impro', status and narrative are often at a disadvantage when skipping Levels, in addition to slowing down the progress of other students.

How many students are in a class?

Our courses and workshops are capped at 16 students max; some courses and workshops have a lower class size - these will be noted in the event description.
