Truth in Performance is a special one-day comedy event to celebrate hilarious and underrepresented voices. For more information about the evening's panel and show, check out this page: It is produced by the Improv Embassy, a nonprofit dedicated to growing Ottawa's improv and sketch comedy community. During the day, we are offering three workshops taught by experienced improvisers, suitable for comedy performers of various skill levels.

To register for these workshops, follow this link:

1. DON'T SPEAK (with Daphney Joseph) — noon to 2 pm
Location: Arts Court Studio
Some of the best improvised comedy is the space between words. This workshop is for performers who want to use their physicality (including those with English as a Second Language) to hone their nonverbal and emotional communication skills.

2. GET REAL (with Coko Galore) — 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Location: Arts Court Studio
Improv isn't just about quick wit — sometimes the funniest thing you can say in a scene is simply speaking your truth. This workshop explores how honesty, playing the reality of the moment, and bringing in your unique perspective can be the most rewarding.

3. STORIES & CONNECTIONS (with Tricia Black) — 2:30 to 4:30 pm
Location: Arts Court Courtroom (second floor)
The Armando is a performance format where real stories inspire improvised scenes. This workshop will combine improv with pure storytelling to explore the hidden truths that connect us.
