beatboxing with North Coast from New York
Learn beatboxing with North Coast from New York City!
Stop spitting all over the microphone and start making jaws drop with your human drum machine skills.
This workshop will take you through the fundamentals of beatboxing technique, and how to apply those techniques to your own ideas. From boots-and-cuts to BTK’s basics, you’ll walk out feeling confident enough to show off your skills solo, or collaborate with any freestyle cypher you encounter.
With a cast of improv comedy veterans in New York City, North Coast’s explosive performances have been packing comedy venues, universities, and festivals nationwide since 2009.
Built around a single suggestion from an audience member, the show’s improvised scenes escalate into full-blown hip-hop songs, facilitated by their resident beatboxer. With their seamless melding of comedic timing and freestyle rapping abilities, North Coast frequently blurs the line between comedy show and concert, drawing audiences from the comedy, hip-hop, and theater communities for an experience that has been hailed as “mind-blowing” and “next level” by critics and audiences alike.
Named one of the “Top Ten Best Comedy Shows” by Time Out New York, North Coast has been featured on Vh1, in Slate’s Podcast The Gist, The Village Voice, and The New York Times Comedy Listings. Currently, you can catch them performing every Saturday night in New York City at The Peoples Improv Theater.
