All Levels | There’s an art to making painful, strange, or even mundane life experiences funny. The students will learn to dig inside their own lives to find humorous, relatable material, to unify an audience, making them laugh at their own experiences through the student’s performance. Students will leave class with a strong understanding of how to structure a story for comedic purposes. Additional focus will be on getting through the fear of being judged for our honesty.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
