Valley Fever Improv Blossoms in Chandler

I've been a huge fan of the Valley improv scene for years now and have taken classes with The Torch Theatre and performed as part of Jester'z at Theater 168.

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
