Comedy Workshop

Jake has put together a comedy workshop with his experience in the theatre education department. He has taught this workshop on college campuses, high school campuses, and in local comedy scenes. This workshop is equal parts comedy theory (what makes people laugh), comedy background, joke structure, and a writing workshop. The writing portion of the workshop combines elements from Matt whites comedy class and the ECU BFA programs "writing for the solo performer" class. This workshop can be kid friendly and a lesson plan is ready to go.
