World's Greatest Improv School

Improv Grad School

WGIS (the World's Greatest Improv School) is both an undergraduate (3 levels) and graduate level improv school. You do not need to have taken WGIS classes to take them. We accept experience from any long-form improv school.

Sunday Drop-Ins

The World's Greatest Improv Drop-In is a series of workshops and classes led by Mike McLendon (WGIS, UCB, Second City, iO) and other guest teachers from the Los Angeles comedy community. Open to all levels, the drop-in is a pay as you go class. Each week will focus on a specific skill or lesson. Students do not have to pre-register. Just show up. Sunday mornings, 10am-noon, The Clubhouse. Details on our LA shows page.
