Learn how to perform hilarious longform improv formats with Second City veteran Kevin Matviw!

Have you ever performed a shortform scene and wished you could see that character again? Well, now you can. Longform improv gives improvisers the opportunity to follow a character past their initial scene, see where their story leads and even have characters from different scenes meet!

Longform improv is (arguably) the most popular improv performance style across North America and the UK.  Come find out why!

This six week class is for graduates of GCI's Improv Fundamentals Program and runs every Monday night from Sept. 11th - Oct. 16th, from 6-9pm. 


Kevin Matviw has been doing improv comedy for 27 years. 15 of those years were spent performing in Toronto, where he became a three-time Toronto Theatresports Champion. Past performance credits include: S#@t My Mayor Says, Best. Monday. Ever. and The Dysfunctional Holiday Revue for The Second City National Touring Company, Best of the Second City at JFL42 and The Best is Yet to Come Undone as an understudy for The Second City Mainstage. He has been featured in various commercials on TV and radio and can be seen improvising on the Food Network’s hidden camera show Giving You the Business. Kevin’s work has been featured in Canada’s National Post, the Canadian Comedy Award winning sketch troupe The Sketchersons, and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Kevin was the assistant director of the Dora Award Winning One Night Only, a fully improvised two-act musical. Kevin’s musical comedy duo Death Ray Cabaret was named Best of Fringe, Outstanding Production and Outstanding Performance in the Toronto Fringe.

Kevin also taught at the legendary Second City Training Centre in Toronto for 12 years. He taught a range of workshops from specialty classes, Levels A-E, the Longform Conservatory Program, The Second City Conservatory Program and the Sketch Writing Program. Many of his former students are successful actors and writers in the Canadian entertainment industry.
