WORKSHOP – Baby Wants Candy – Musical Improv

Saturday October 1st @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Baby Wants Candy is thrilled to lead a three hour music improv intensive at BIF2022. No musical improv experience needed!

Baby Wants Candy (“Truly Amazing! Critics Pick” New York Times, ★★★★★ TimeOut, “★★★★★Scotsman) is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed comedy ensembles in the world, with casts in Chicago, LA, NY, an international touring company and ten years of fully sold-out Ed Fringe runs.

Based on BWC’s signature form- a one hour, completely improvised musical with a full band – participants will learn how to:

  1. Create musical narratives while still maintaining the funny
  2. Use the game of the scene, characters, emotions & wants to create strong comedic songs
  3. Rhyme confidently and consistently
  4. Elevate your chorus’ to find the funny through dedicated word play training

Baby Wants Candy draws upon its years of experience, with over 4000 improvised musicals and counting, for its workshops. Our style combines what we consider are the best parts of UCB and iO, both institutions at which we performed and taught for years.

Space is limited so sign up early.

Whether you love musicals, long-form, or just want to learn to play faster, funnier, but at the same time with more emotion, this workshop will set you up for success in creating successful comedic improvisation in the future.
