Each month two new genre's are decided on. The audience gives the player the inspiration in the form or a title, topic, or word. From there you get to see a mini movie, play, or tv episode created in the moment. This month what will it be? Slasher? Rom Com? Musical.

Get away from learning forms and just focus on making better scenes. Each week will focus on a different aspect of improv and will make you a better improviser as a whole. We'll work on Listening, Trust, Space, Time, Controlling the Audience, Patterns, and Characters. Most improvisers rate this as their favorite class at Backline, and certainly the best class to retake.

The Backline is proud to be a home for all comedy in Omaha. While we are primarily a longform improv training center, any and all local comedians come through here to perform improv, standup, sketch, talk shows, etc. We keep our shows cheap and our beer cheap, with no drink minimum. We just want to help Omaha become one of the greatest cities for comedy in America.
We are also proud to ride that fine line between producing basically uncensored comedy but also being a safe place with zero tolerance for abuse and harassment.
