Wednesday Jam

Wednesday Jam
Every Wednesday 7-9pm at the Hideout’s east side Studios space (2505 E 6th St, Unit C)
Free! RSVP on Facebook or just show up 

This is an open improv comedy Jam, no experience necessary, no Hideout affiliation necessary. It runs 7-9pm with 45 minutes of warm-up games (bippity bippity bop, bad rap, etc.) and favorite exercises (hat game, what comes next?, etc.) and then 75 minutes of mock show (games and scenes in front of the group). This is just for improvisers; no tickets, no audience.

This isn’t a class or workshop – just an easy opportunity to play – so no feedback or criticism. The Jam will be facilitated by upper level Hideout students. They’ll show up with some ideas for what to do, and ask the group of jammers what they would be excited to do (so bring your own ideas about what you’d like to try out).

First Wednesday of the month is a regular Jam
Second Wednesday is a Maestro Jam (focusing on Hideout’s weekly show format)
Third Wednesday is a regular Jam
Fourth Wednesday is a Musical Jam (focusing on improvised singing with a live musician)
The occasional Fifth Wednesday is a Narrative Jam (focusing on improvised stories and genre shows)

The Wednesday Jams are held at Hideout Studios in east Austin – 2505 E 6th St, Unit C (just east of Pedernales, park on the street). The jam is FREE – you can RSVP on the Hideout’s Performer and Student Facebook page or just show up at 7pm on Wednesday.
