I've put together this press release that will go out next week. Help me spread the word.
Have you thought about becoming a stand-up comedian? Do people tell you you’re funny? Do people tell you you’re not funny, but you want to be? Are you interested in writing comedy, or making a living through comedy? Then the Comedy Workshop is for you. This free course will start on Wednesday, February 6 and will meet weekly for four weeks.
The course will feature instruction based on Judy Carter’s famous LA Comedy Workshop. “A few weeks ago, a few friends gathered to explore the idea of putting together a stand-up comedy night,” explained
The goal of the workshop is for each individual to ultimately develop thirty minutes of original comedy material. “Even if you don’t want to perform comedy, but just want to add more humor to your life, to your writing, or to your talks, this is a good way of doing it,” said Khorram. “Understanding comedy also helps you see more humor every day, and helps you appreciate the natural comedy around you. So, this comedy workshop isn’t just for people that want to perform comedy. It’s for anyone who wants to gain an appreciation for how comedy works.” For those interested in performing, the group has planned an evening of stand-up comedy towards the end of February.
Part 1 of the workshop is “Creating Killer Comedy
Part 2 focuses on “How Not to Bomb.” In this section you develop your material further and concentrate on performance. You’ll learn secrets to dealing with hecklers, avoiding hack material, the top five mistakes comics make, insider secrets of successful rewrites, how to make the audience love you in five seconds, and building a set that kills.
For those interested in making money, Part 3 is on “
The Comedy Workshop will begin on Wednesday, February 6 at at
