First Time Ever! Join our Improv for Commercials In-Person/Online Hybrid Class with Top NYC Casting Director, Barry Shapiro!

Please note you will have the option to attend this class in person in NYC or join via Zoom from anywhere in the world if you're not in NYC area. We strongly recommend joining in-person if you have the option to do so.

In this fun class, you will work on commercials that require Improvisation. Many commercial auditions are asking for this skill these days.  We will work on facial expressions, nonspeaking commercials, and commercials that have dialogue but the client wants you to make it your own and make up your own commercials off the top of your head. We will work on single improv, two-person improv, and group improv over the three weeks.

Barry Shapiro is the owner of Herman & Lipson Casting. He has been with Herman & Lipson for over 37 years, casting over 8000 commercials- both voiceover and on camera- for products such as L'Oreal, ESPN, Advil, Verizon, Toy R Us, and many more. He casts commercials all around the world, as well as in film, television, and theatre.
