Exploring Comedy Styles:
What makes people laugh and why?

(And more importantly, how does an actor get that laugh on stage!)

A three-day workshop exploring comic performance technique. Students will work on timing, delivery, expression, and physicality. Several forms of comedy material will be explored ranging from Vaudeville and Radio scripts to Sketch Comedy and playwrights such as Noel Coward and Neil Simon. The workshop will include extensive physical and vocal work bringing the script to life using the students acting talents in addition to their unique physical and vocal abilities.
