$295 + Fees

We’ll take your characters, premises and totally discovered moments in an improvised  set and turn them into written sketch. We’ll pay close attention to game, how to give and take as a reasonable and unreasonable person and flesh out any and all ideas you have, no matter how off the wall. We will improvise until we turn it into a written tightly wound sketch. The most fun ever. Taught by Patrick McCartney.

Improv, Acting, Solo Performance, Private Coaching

Patrick McCartney is an actor and Improviser. He got his start in Chicago in the late 1990’s where he studied with Del Close and Mick Napier. He spent two years in Chicago’s Second City Touring Company Blue Co where he toured the country with Ali Farahnakian, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. His love of the theater kept him working steadily in plays outside of the world of improv. He was a member of Chicago’s Center Theater Ensemble and did plays at Stage Left, Steppenwolf and The Bailiwick. He moved to LA briefly where he studied with Ivana Chubbuck. In NYC he became a regular at ASSSSCAT and a teacher at the first UCB space. He was a member of Shira Piven’s Water Ensemble where he starred in Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Pilgrims” at the Tribeca Playhouse. He was an original member of the improv groups “Centralia” and “Beer. Shark. Mice.” He’s done television and film including Elf, “Conan O’Brien”, “Wake Up, Ron Burgundy” and “Law and Order”. He has recently returned to the world of improv and has been teaching at the PIT. Patrick is a member of Centralia who perform Saturday nights at the PIT Loft. Patrick’s solo show about addiction and recovery Sinister Kid is currently playing at The PIT loft on Friday nights.
