Taught by Sharon Em. Have you been doing some shows on the open mic circuit, and feel like you need something more? Do you feel a disconnect between how funny you are with your friends and how funny you are on stage? Do you want help to take your comedy to the next level? If you can relate to any of these questions then our Intermediate course is the course for you. Over the course of 8, 2-hour classes we help you to take your comedy to the next level. Please note: The first 7 classes are on a Saturday afternoon. The last class is on a Monday evening. We review your material together and workshop what works and what doesn’t, revisiting it in the context of who you are and your honest voice. We help bring perspective and context to what you’re working with that’s hard to get by yourself. We explore exercises and habits to help with your writing process and let your imagination flow to make comedy writing a part of your life in a way where you can react when the inspiration hits. We find ways to trigger the funniness within you in ways that feel as natural as you are in your funniest moments. We work together as a group to get different perspectives on different styles and feedback to collaboratively find improvements, other perspectives and unique directions to take things. Political, absurd, improvisation, dead-pan, we try new things. We explore more distinct styles outside of your comfort zone giving you the safe space to take risks, try new things and see how it feels with guidance and feedback. Together we’ll develop a hoard of new material, so you can pick your best 5 minutes to present in the graduation show at the end of the course! The graduation show for this course will be on December 8th, 2023. ***If we do not have enough sign-ups a week before class starts, we will have to cancel.
