Program Description

About this event:

In a fast-paced two-hour seminar, learn the comedy writing techniques that will add humor to your conversations, speeches, Tweets, and annual holiday letters. Like painting, tennis or music, comedy writing has certain fundamental rules that can be taught to anyone (the rest is practice, practice, practice). We all love to laugh, and this is a chance to learn how to create that laughter to brighten your mood, make others smile, release tension, and--if you're determined and lucky--make a living.
