Long form anyone?

After having taken improv classes for two years at ComedySportz San Jose, I find myself with a hankering for more/different improv experiences.  Though the experience of learning the short-form games and living within the strictures of that style has been very good for me, it is frustrating to not be able to keep characters alive and see where they go. As part of the ComedySportz journey, I worked on long-form skills in the level 2 class (which I managed to take twice) but haven't had the opportunity to do it since.
In order to find an additional (or different) improv outlet for my energies, I have been asking my friend Google to help me find options.  Needless to say, there isn't a whole lot here on the Coastside but the Bay Area certainly offers a lot of options in improv performance and classes, from Santa Cruz and San Jose to San Francisco and the East Bay.
