COMEDY GIRL 7-WEEK WORKSHOPS

COMEDY GIRL presents: BUILDING STORIES

Did you know that by the time someone says "Long story short" that they've already gone way too long? Over the course of this program you will learn how to boil down a huge, messy story into something more palatable and enjoyable to listen to. Or perhaps you have had an experience that you would love to share, but don't know how to expand beyond just a few sentences. We will have a safe place to learn and grow together, to take risk, and to find true connections to our stories. Whether your goal is to hone a story to fit perfectly into a stand-up set, perform at a live storytelling show or just be able to hold your own at the dinner table full of loud family, this course will be able to get you there.

Time: 5:45PM - 7:45PM

Cost: $285
