Focus and Fun w/ Josh Simpson & Jake Jabbour of The MEAT Improv

A two part workshop focusing on the ideas of finding simple, clear
games and having the most fun possible playing them. The first part of
the workshop will be in a larger group setting with both teachers. The
second half will split the class into two smaller groups so every
student gets more time on stage putting the concepts into practice.

Josh Simpson and Jake Jabbour are performers at the UCB Theater in LosAngeles and co-hosts of The MEAT Improv podcast featuring the best improv comedians from LA (and now the entire country!) They also host Shapeshift Improv, a monthly show that pushes teams and performers to doperform and develop new, experimental forms.

Josh has been performing in LA for a decade and teaching at the UCB Theater for 5 years. He’s worked for Funny or Die and Team Coco, and appeared on CONAN, Reno 911! and The UCB Show on Seeso as Kitty Katt Williams.

Jake writes and performs at the UCB theater, and has been an educator in Los Angeles for the last seven years. Jake co-created and co-hosts the long running late night talk-show We’re Gross with Gilli Nissim at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles.
