PREREQUISITE: YOU MUST HAVE COMPLETED LEVEL 4 IMPROV  TO QUALIFY FOR THIS CLASS. In the comment section of Checkout, please list when you took said classes and who your instructors were.

If you fail to meet the prerequisites for this course and continue to register anyway, we will have to transfer you out and add the balance as class credit, to be used for other classes.

 

In level 5 you will explore the new forms in Improv. As a group you will learn the fundamentals of these forms, as well as working on performing them. Once you’ve mastered the form(s) taught by your instructor, as a class, you’ll create your own form to present at your Grad Show alongside one of the newly learned forms. This is a rotating-curriculum class, so as new offerings of this class are released, you’ll have the opportunity to learn new forms and create a brand-new form with students who’ve also studied Levels 1-4 already!

 

* As of 7/1/2023, we are instituting a strict no refund policy.

Please note, class start dates are subject to be postponed up to 4 weeks from original posted date

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”. Patrick is one half of the improv duo Bareilles and McCartney who perform regularly at The PIT Loft. He teaches all levels of improv and an acting class for The PIT.

When Patrick isn’t at The PIT, you can catch him performing in the “Best of Second City” Saturday through Tuesday. He’s also directing the new political sketch show “Lifestyle” for Hyperobject Industries.
