I’ll admit: when I signed up for a workshop with Matt Besser, I was scared shitless. Although I’m a fan of his work, I’d heard he had a reputation for being harsh.
Sure enough he had strong opinions, but isn’t that what you’re paying for in a master class? I learned a lot, and was grateful for the opportunity to learn from someone who’s done so much for improv.
When I came across this series of shorts produced by UCB Comedy, I just had to share. Besides being absolutely hilarious, they scared me just a little bit. Enjoy.
