Level 3 Improv | November 28 | McCartney
About the class
This class will help students to use their knowledge of the IMPROV YOUR LIFE™ philosophy as applied to scenework to create a fully-formed improvised show. Students will focus on developing stronger relationships between characters, using walk-ons and tag-outs to enrich the funny, pacing through editing, heightening scenes, three-beat structure, and making connections between scenes. Students will leave this level understanding how to perform a standard long form structure.
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. He is also on the PIT House Team The Community Players that perform on Wednesday nights.
