What you'll learn in this comedy class:

Why are some comedians able to take on a stylized personality on stage, and how does it affect their material? What's the difference between a comedian and somebody who just tells jokes? In this workshop, veteran comedy coach Steve North explores the idea of 'comedic characters' and how comedians are able to find their onstage persona through the discovery of flaws and applied exaggeration, as well as how the concept of character exaggeration can be used to strengthen comedy act-outs. 

If you're trying to develop a stronger voice on stage, or bring more life to your characterizations, don't miss this unique one-day workshop!
