Is this class for beginners?

  • Yes. Our Improv 101 class is an entry-level course. All 200 level courses and higher require completion of an entry-level course or permission from the instructor to attend.

My child is 13 years old, can I sign them up for a class?

  • Unfortunately, no. All Helium Comedy Academy classes are 18+.

How much progress can I expect to gain from this class?

  • As with any class or lesson, you get out what you put in. Those who participate, do the homework assignments, and put real effort in their work will see significant advancement in their skill level over someone who was merely present in class.
