CREATING COMEDY FOR PERFORMANCE
This course provides a guide to creating and developing material for stand-up comedy and offers an exploration of several key comedic performance techniques. It is designed to help each comic to develop an awareness of the performance styles that works for them and to build crucial confidence.
Crafting gags and laughter lines, creating narrative journeys, and producing material that is sharp, funny, and reflective of the comic’s individual persona is central to this highly interactive online course.
