Matthew Hovde — The Science of Improvisation

Matthew Hovde
Resident Director, The Second City

Much as science is a method for unraveling the mysteries of the world, improvisation is a method for unlocking creativity and improving communication. Matt Hovde (Resident Director, The Second City) will help participants explore how the techniques that fuel the comedy of artists like Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, and Steve Carell, help non-performers with innovation, audience interaction, and collaboration.

Matt Hovde is a Resident Director for The Second City, as well as the Artistic Director of their Chicago Training Center. Credits include: Let Them Eat Chaos; Who Do We think We Are; Sky’s the Limit (Weather Permitting); Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies!; America: All Better!; Studs Terkel’s Not Working; Rod Blagojevich Superstar!; Campaign Supernova; Between Barack and a Hard Place; and The Best of The Second City. He was also a co-founder of the Galileo Players, a sketch troupe inspired by science and philosophy.
