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!
