Comedy has been described as “tragedy plus time,” and what a year it’s been. Jokes are often written to make light of situations ranging from matters of the heart to politics. They’re what breaks the tension in horror films, giving the audience a chance to both catch and lose their breath. In this course, participants will analyze elements of joke writing and performance. Utilizing key elements of the Socratic method, prewriting and revision, this course is designed to help you write, rehearse and deliver your first five minutes of comedy in a voice all your own.
