Sister Theaters/Schools WITH THE CCB

We are thrilled to announce that we are becoming sister schools/theaters with our friends over at Comedy Cafe Berlin (CCB). After teaching and performing abroad with the CCB many times, Philip Markle and Annie Donley and CCB's Artistic Director Noah Telson decided make the partnership official. Our mission is to exchange ideas, showcase talent, and provide opportunities for members within our communities to travel and experience not only improv and comedy, but life in our respective cities/countries. Both BCC and CCB share a drive to create an open, safe and welcoming environment for improv; one that champions the exchange of ideas and breaks down borders and boundaries of countries and dogmas. To that end we are offering:

Workshops: Each theater will offer intensives/workshops taught by top instructors from their sister theater periodically throughout the year. These workshops will feature the unique approach of their theater’s ethos to comedy and improv.

Showcases: Each theater will host select shows from their sister theater periodically throughout the year. These teams will showcase their theater's style of play while also immersing themselves in the culture and lifestyle of the other city.

Upcoming Timeline:

  • May 12-13, 2018:  BCC Artistic Director Philip Markle teaching a musical improv intensive workshop in Berlin.
  • June 23-24, 2018: CCB Artistic Director Noah Telson and CCB house team members to perform and teach workshops at BCC in New York.
  • June 25-28, 2018: BCC offering a summer intensive for CCB members and the public culminating in a show on June 28th at BCC.

"The BCC’s performers seem to be doing quite well for themselves. Even a cursory scan of the BCC calendar reveals a bevy of top comedic talent: Chris Gethard (The Chris Gethard Show), John Reynolds (Stranger Things, Search Party), Gary Richardson (SNL), all jump to mind, along with many, many others. The hilarious show I was able to view, TV DINNER (fans may remember its predecessor The Holy Fuck Comedy Hour) displayed a unique sketch style akin to the hybrid improv/sketch approach popularized by Curb Your Enthusiasm..."
