AT THE ASSEMBLY WE FOCUS ON LONG-FORM IMPROV.
The scenes are created, on the spot, from a story or suggestion that explores relationships, characters or situations.
We do this using the philosophy of Game of The Scene – finding and exploring something funny, weird, unusual or interesting in the scene, then exploring and heightening it until the scene ends.
At the Assembly South Africa we believe in fostering and developing the long-form community through classes, coaching, showcases and workshops to develop South Africa’s unique comedic talents.
Life is improvisation. All of those [improv] classes were like church to me. The training had seeped into me and changed who I am.
We've been trying forever to get improvisation on TV. It's just like stand-up. It's best when it's just left alone. It doesn't translate always on TV. It's best live.
