There are SO MANY ways to be funny! Are you having trouble finding your comedic voice? Do you feel your current voice isn't true to yourself? Do you want to step outside the preconceived notions of what stand up is and be your own brand of funny? This workshop will discuss our perception of stand up and look at things that fit outside those boxes. Each person will write a (or use a current) mini stand up set. Then, we'll experiment with different ways to do the same set. We might even do each other's sets to explore what makes a joke universally funny!
