The Pack’s core Improv and Sketch Programs represent what we consider to be the foundations for good performers and writers. We also offer elective workshops throughout the year because a good performer never stops learning. Our electives help students expand their performance abilities and refine their understanding of different approaches to the work. Our commitment to adjustment, adaptation and evolution is what separates The Pack Theater from other comedy schools.

Podcasting is one of the fastest growing sectors of entertainment right now. With all the competition out there, how do you make your podcast idea stand out? In this workshop, we will: refine your podcast pitch, brainstorm and build show segments, plan the individual pieces and details you need in place for a successful show, strategize delivery, and polish your podcast brain-child so that it can reach all the right ears. By the end of the workshop, we’ll get you in the booth with one of our engineers, and you’ll walk out with a completed, mastered pilot.  Did we mention each class and your recording in the same world class recording booth we recorded Rick and Morty, Animals, and Anomlisa?
