Now a couple of my former Jester'z buddies are teaching classes of their own at Art on Boston at Chandler. It's called Valley Fever Improv, and students learn way more than what you'll ever see on Whose Line Is It Anyway?
The class, for $99, is 2 hours every Wednesday night from 6-8 p.m. January 6-February 10. It's an Intro to Improv Comedy class, which means no experience is necessary. And even if you plan to end your improv career after taking the class, improv still helps in everyday situations, such as when you have to give group presentations or just be social in general at networking events.
And if you want to check out the pros work their magic on-stage, Valley Fever Improv shows are at the same location Saturday, January 16 and Saturday, January 30. For more info, call (480) 699-4598, or log on to www.valleyfeverimprov.com.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
