POC Night: Try Improv for free with Blind Tiger Comedy!

March 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

On Friday, March 1st at 6:00pm, Blind Tiger Comedy is having another POC Night including a free improv class and jam show hosted by Ese Atawo! Read on for more details and come try comedy!

THE FREE IMPROV CLASS, 6-7:15

POC Night aims to provide a safe, supportive environment to dig into improv/ comedy for people of colour. This free class is exclusively for people of colour!

The workshop will consist of some easy, fun, accessible intro games and maybe even a few scene-lets that will give you a taste of the joy, confidence, and thrill that improv can offer. Have no fear, this class will make you feel welcome, no experience necessary!

To register for this class, please grab a free ticket via eventbrite:
https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/btc-poc-night-free-improv-class-tickets-55990982536 – This is just to ensure we don’t have more folks than our space can reasonably allow for this class!

THE POC JAM, 7:30-8:30

From 7:30-8:30pm, it’s the POC Jam! People of colour from across the Vancouver comedy community are welcome to come jam, no experience required! Led by Blind Tiger Comedy faculty Ese Atawo, this jam will feature a mix of games, scenes and other approachable improv forms.

The POC Jam’s cast will be exclusively people of colour, though everyone is welcome to watch starting at 7:30! To register for the jam, just show up at 7:15!

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Health officials in British Columbia have banned events with more than 50 people in order to combat the spread of COVID-19 and closed all non-essential businesses.

Little Mountain Gallery is a shared community space and has supported our showrunners in choosing to cancel their performances to encourage social isolation and prevent the spread of this illness.

Our not-for-profit business model relies on regular rentals in the space and, due to these unprecedented circumstances, we are asking for donations to ensure we are able to remain in operation through this pandemic.

Little Mountain Gallery is following the City of Vancouver's updates on this issue.

We'll be updating this message as new information becomes available.

Thanks!
