Bring out your creative side! Please join us for Laugh-A-Holics an 8 week Comedy Writing Workshop that focuses on how to be funny on paper. The exercises and techniques presented are a proven method of developing original material.
If you are an aspiring stand-up, would like to punch up your speeches and other writing or add humor to your life in general, you will find this a rewarding experience.
The workshop offers a practical and proven approach to generate original material. It examines basic joke structure, the use of imagery and distortion and how to develop a facility with words in order to keep the jokes flowing.
I began performing comedy in Boston in the 1980’s and over time I have used these methods to create an act for myself which I have performed at nightclubs, on A&E and Showtime, in Las Vegas, and on cruise ships. It has also allowed me to sell material to other performers including Joan Rivers who I opened for on her last East Coast tour.
The class meets each Tuesday evening at 7:00. The class will end with a comedy final featuring performances from class
participants and local professional comedian.
