Any film you’ve ever seen, song heard, performance attended – artists put a lot of work into it. In spite of that, somebody out there hated on it. Nothing is universal. Every piece of art is despised by someone – Bad Theater Fest is born!

Our motivation behind starting a festival openly searching for "bad" theater or film is to make a venue available to people who want to write but are worried about what others may think about it. So don’t worry, just go for it. Your creation may not be the best thing out there - it isn't the worst either.

“It’s not that we have low standards, says co-founder Shawn Wickens. “It’s that we have different standards. We want to curate the most diverse festival possible, not only in content but with also who is involved.” The “bad” in Bad Theater is a tongue-in-cheek label, a fun way of saying that you might love what you see, you might not – and that’s OK.

Sean was great. We went as a team of 4 for some team building and he was really personable & welcoming. The class was fun and something totally different.

Complete waste of time. I was the only on who showed up, so it was just me and the instructor in a coffee shop having a conversation about comedy. I traveled about an hour each way and paid for that? I thought it was going to be a class, but it was the same as meeting a friend for coffee. There were other things I could have done with that time.

The instructor was an excellent teacher. You surely learn a lot from him of how to improve your comedy and acting skills. The cost for the class is very reasonable.

By far the best class I've taken in NYC yet. Shawn was able to answer every question I had, help me through my stuck points, and I left with a fresh sense of confidence about myself as a performer/ artist.
