After wrapping up the third writing class here in Nashville, several students hung around and fired off questions. They asked …

  • How do you survive your first open mic night?
  • What tips do you have on preparing for the first show?
  • Should I run the jokes by my friends?
  • How do I get to be on a speaker’s bureau showcase?
  • How can I take characters from my video series and use them onstage?
  • Will acting classes help me develop characters?
  • Would Improv classes help with character development?
  • How do you know if you’ve found your comedy point of view?

and a lot more.
