A New Approach to Improv -- aka The improv style of “Adsit and Eveleth”
This workshop will most likely be unlike any workshop you've ever taken. It combines Jet Eveleth's 20 years of performing, training, and teaching into the very essence of the work. Jet takes her experience performing with masters in Chicago and around the world and puts the most important lessons together in one straightforward punch. This master workshop is open to all levels because the techniques will be new to everyone. Get ready to let your brain unravel and your heart take the wheel.
Jet Eveleth travels with the show "Adsit & Eveleth" with Scott Adsit of 30 Rock and has performed with The Reckoning at the iO Theater since 2001. She toured the sketch show "I Live Next Door To Horses" (Winner of Del Close Award for Best Scripted Show) and was listed as New City magazine’s "Top 50 Players" in Chicago for 2010 and 2012. Jet Eveleth recently created an original character in the show Absinthe at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, called the greatest show in Vegas history by Las Vegas Weekly. The Huffington Post described the show as "Risqué, dangerous and mind-altering... It is poetic, beautiful, inspiring and insulting. The greatest show on earth."
She developed the television pilots You Should Be Famous, Jet Across America (MTV) and most recently an original sketch pilot for NBC. You can hear her voice characters on the TV show Animals now in it's third season on HBO. In 2012 she toured Europe performing and teaching physical theater with The Second City and the US Embassy. She is faculty at The Second City Conservatory Program, iO Theater and was the former artistic director of the Chicago Improv Festival. She also created the curriculum and taught at Columbia College's Comedy Studies Program, where she also received her Masters in Interdisciplinary Arts.

"All theater workshops promise the same thing -- to teach the art of being physically and emotionally present. This one delivers." -Leslie Carson
"One of the best teachers on this planet! She encourages you to be bold and wild, to go beyond your fears, to dive into the unknown, and to embrace and love the experience, and to be present, to really be in the moment. Not only when improvising but in life." -Heike Reissig
"She shows you how to make the the stage a place where you can most be you." -Stephanie Hunger
"In less than two hours she blew apart and reconstructed our work… Get in a room with Jet and she'll remind you why you became an improviser in the first place." -Allison Ungar
"Jet takes you on a roller coaster of ego breaking improv exercises, that will provide you with an arsenal of tools to further scene and develop arc. Be ready to feel like you have brand new legs and leave feeling victorious."
"Jet's class made me want to cry. Best workshop I've taken in 3 years."
