Command the Stage: A Stand-Up Workshop
No Experience Required – Open to All!
Saturday Nov 13 | 2:00-4:00PM
Instructor: Nick Cutelli
FREE! (RSVP Required)
Workshop Description: In Nick Cutelli’s crash course stand-up workshop, comedians learn how to channel their instinct gut experiences to create new comedic material. Anyone can write a joke about robots fighting dinosaurs, but no one can write about your personal life experiences. You’ll focus on how to take your material to a strong energy performance level through mime movement and character work. In this workshop you will learn how to take command of the stage and perform a joke, instead of just telling one.
