"Great stories happen to those who can tell them." -- Ira Glass

Authenticity is was makes us attractive. On stage, in meetings, in personal relationships. What better way to create content that resonates with others than by using your own life experiences?

In this writing/performance workshop, you’ll sharpen your skills with writing exercises designed to mine memories, improvisational exercises to define your voice, and personal notes to flesh out your material. By the end of this 6-week course, everyone will leave with at least one polished story for their next show/date/holiday dinner!

This class is perfect for comedians wanting more written content, performers who want to inject vulnerability into their work, anyone who is serious about their craft.


*People like you when you’re funny, they love you when you’re vulnerable.*
