C.O.R.E. Improv Workout with Tim Paul



(C)haracter, (O)bjective, (R)elationship & (E)nvironment – these elements provide you with the framework to knock your scene out of the park. This workshop will pinpoint & tackle specific weaknesses & bad habits that surface in your scene work. Then you’ll move through specific challenges in later scenes that are geared towards your specific area of need. This class is scenic bootcamp – there’s no point focusing on the game of the scene, if there’s no real scene to begin with.

Tim Paul is a recent transplant to L.A. from Chicago. He's currently a faculty member at the Second City Hollywood Training Center. Prior to his move, he was a resident director at the Annoyance Theatre in Chicago - selected credits include My So-Called Afterlife, Becker, Escape From Ground Zero and Fisting: A Period Piece. In addition to previously being on the faculty at both the Annoyance (Chicago) and Second City (Chicago), he has been a guest instructor at the Annoyance (NYC), Dublin Improv (Dublin, Ireland), The Nursery (London, UK), The New Movement (Austin, Texas), Recul (Bucharest, Romania), Finest City Improv (San Diego), San Francisco Improv Fest, Providence Improv Guild (Rhode Island) and Improv Asylum (Boston). Tim was an ensemble member of Mick Napier’s Invisible World at the Annoyance, which was named ‘Best Sketch of 2014’ by Chicago Magazine.

In between his move from Chicago to Los Angeles, Tim spent the better part of a year, between Barcelona & Bermuda, performing with Second City aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines. Finally, his solo shows, No Fats, No Femmes (2012)& Wellbutrin Whore(2015) were official selections of the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival. In L.A., Tim performs weekly at the Pack Theatre and can be seen about town doing Stand-up.
