Every Tuesday, 6:00-8:00 pm (Arizona time zone)
Our organized and structured virtual classes with Joe Hammer are $10 per 2-hour class, held via Zoom. Unlike many conventional online improv training classes, Joe delves into the core elements, principles and techniques of effective and comedic improv, not just fun games (altho we do that too!). He also provides you with personal notes to assist in making your scenes more enjoyable and funny!
Login information will be provided to students by email upon receipt of class payment. Please review the Class Information Guide included in the class login e-mail prior attending class.

Joe Hammer has been actively presenting powerful personal and business development seminars and entertainment programs for decades. Complimenting his book, THE IMPROV EDGE, Joe’s improv classes and workshops deliver high-impact content from his extensive training with Magnet Theater, Upright Citizen’s Brigade and Impro Theatre, including disciplines with fellow improv authors, Mick Napier of The Annoyance Theater and Will Hines of UCB.
Joe’s classes go beyond simple improv games; you’ll discover practical and constructive principles of both short and long form improvisation – all while enjoying ample stage time, personalized coaching and considerate feedback. There’s something new in every class!
And it’s all taught in a safe, respectful, and non-judgmental setting. No egos. No harassment. No criticism. Just progressive improv training in a positive environment!
As a perceptive chameleon, Banter recognizes the importance of being adaptable. Banter came to be the Outcasters’ mascot after trying to find a place to cool off from the blazing Arizona sun. He stumbled inside a drop-in improv class and, after seeing what The Outcasters were all about, he quickly realized he was home! Whether you’re an experienced improviser, just beginning your improv journey, or attending one of our shows, Banter invites you to join us!
