STAND UP COMEDY. The elements that make for good stand-up comedy will be the subject of one of our future workshops. I feel knowing what goes into
stand-up; can be useful for those events that may come your way: hosting a program, MC for an awards presentation, or any other party events like weddings, roasts, etc. If you feel this would interest you, please let us know.

IMPROVISATION WORKSHOP. We hope to have a visit in the near future from Second City to explain how their Improvisation Workshop works.

WRITERS WORKSHOP. The methods, style and elements of writing commercial copy as well as TV, Radio or Video scripts will be presented. This is a beginning workshop for those who are interested in trying their hand at writing for that specific market.
