This class is a jam packed, fast paced good ole time!  Energy, pacing and timing - COMEDY!  There is a lot that goes into comedy. Gone are the days where your options are only single or multi cam comedies (Not sure what the difference is?  No worries......we'll cover that in class).  Now we have 1/2 hour comedies, hour long comedies, network comedy, cable comedy, streamers, indie film vs studio film comedy.  It can be daunting.  Then there's co-stars vs guest stars vs recurring roles and more.  We'll break it down so everyone can understand it.  Social media will be part of the conversation so get your Twitter and IG profiles ready.  Please come prepared with all your questions about anything and everything industry related.   Remember this is all about COMEDY and we ARE going to have fun! =)

CLASS BREAKDOWN:
Day 1 - You will prepare a MAXIMUM 1-2 minute scene from a tv series (not an unknown pilot but an already aired series) or a well known studio comedy feature film (not an obscure indie comedy nobody has seen).  Everyone will perform their scene with the class reader and I'll give you notes for redirect.  At the end of Day 1 I will give you scenes and partners to work on for the next day.  You will have to carve out some time to work with your partner before the next class.

 

Day 2-  Each pair will perform their scene and we'll play with them with notes and direction as we talk about the different types of comedy and roles mentioned above.  I realize you won't have much info about the scenes you are given nor will you have loads of time to rehearse. That's the point!  =)

 

Day 3 - Using the same material and same partners for Day 2 you will spend a little more time working together incorporating the notes I gave you in Day 2 to really work out the scene for this final class.  Remember this is bootcamp and things are going to move quickly.  You really will need to be avail the entire weekend so you can commit to this work otherwise you will do yourself and your scene partner a great disservice. It's going to be FUN so come ready to work.   This class is NOT for beginners.
