Online Zoom Improv Training Classes

Every Tuesday, 6:00 to 8:00 pm (MST)

Want to learn improv from the comfort of your home? Join Joe Hammer, founder of The Outcasters and author of The Improv Edge for online improv training classes! Join us via Zoom and “put your funny on” every Tuesday night from 6:00 to 8:00 pm MST. Classes are open to everyone and no previous experience is required! 

For just 10 bucks our online drop-in class will get you two hours of warm ups, games and improv comedy coaching. Joe teaches students the principles of both short and long form improvisation. 

Unlike many conventional online improv training classes, Joe delves into the core elements and techniques of effective and comedic improv… not just fun games (altho we do that too!). You’ll receive feedback and discover new improv techniques. Classes are ongoing and you can join us anytime! There’s something new in every class. 

Kudos from Joe Hammers clients!

Meet the Outcasters' Chameleon Mascot, Banter!

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!
