Steve Kaplan's Comedy Intensive
Name of Class: Number of classes: 2 Dates: March 2nd & 3rd Sat 9:30 am to 5 pm & Sun 10 am to 5 pm Teacher: Steve Kaplan Class Description: This is a comedy writing class, not an acting class!
This Comedy Intensive is a two-day course that explores The hidden tools of comedy: what it is, how it works, why it works, what's happening when it's not working and what you can do to fix it. On Day 1, we explore the Hidden Tools--useable, practical tools that you can apply immediately to your work. Day 2 shows how those tools can be applied to text, focusing on Comic Archetype, Creating and Developing the Comic Premise, and the Comic Hero’s Journey. Both days include lots of time for Q & A. The workshop includes exercises, solo and group writing activities, as well as a liberal use of clips from current and classic comedies to illustrate our points and principles. It's a very interactive experience. Imagine Robert McKee, only with more laughs.This two day class normally costs: $395 Members pay: $200 for two full-day classes. Price: Member: $200 | Non-Member: $395
