Remember "fake it till you make it"? That's child's play.

Learn improv basics in a fun, team-oriented environment.

In ASAP’s Operation Improv class, you’ll laugh hysterically, build your confidence, and maybe find some lifelong friends. Dive into this free, six-week class with other veterans and military family members to master the foundations of improv comedy. It’ll be your favorite part of the week!

Your class will finish with a public graduation show. After completing the class, you can enroll in advanced-level improv courses through our partner improv schools, participate in our community performances, and connect with other alumni for improv jam sessions.

The basics of the improv ‘yes and’ orientation have made my communication pathways stronger, less confrontational, and have enhanced my relationship with my better half. The toolkit I’ve developed from improv has been invaluable in my professional life, too. My work can be very fluid and some of my clients can be very difficult. My improv skills have helped me navigate stressful professional situations and have given me techniques to de-escalate conflicts.

And, improv has helped me unlearn a lot of the coping mechanisms that helped me in the military, but hurt me in civilian life. It has taught me that vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness, and that it’s part of a healthy masculinity, not something that should be avoided. This has allowed me to remove layers of my armor, communicate at a more personal and human level, and forge deeper bonds with others.
