Virtual Comedy Workshops

 

 

If you are looking for a supportive group to work on your material and stagecraft – I have good news for you!

I’m about to kick off a series of live, virtual comedy workshops over Zoom. These workshops are led by 30-year veteran clean comedian Rik Roberts.

STAND-UP COMEDY WRITING CLASS

STAND-UP COMEDY WRITING CLASS

Virtual COMEDY WRITING (Level 2) Workshop [REGISTER NOW]

Take your comedy writing to another level with this laser-focused workshop. This offering is designed for people who are currently performing comedy. It is ideal for those who have taken an online course or workshop with Rik in the past, or who have stage experience and want to advance further. Among other things, you will be challenged during this three-session workshop to:

  • Develop an opening joke that generates a laugh in under 15 seconds
  • Create a bit that averages at least 6 laughs per minute (lpm)
  • Generate a series of “saver lines” that rescue a bombing joke
  • Write a bit that reveals your biggest fears and insecurities
  • Turn a long story into a series of quick “tight” jokes
  • Learn how to write “sound bite” punchlines to use in your demo video
  • Get deeper in touch with your “comedy voice”
and much more.

The beauty of it all? You don’t have to go it alone. This will be a true workshop featuring other students who will help you get your results quicker. The only catch? You’ll be helping them, too. Class size is limited. To save your spot, register HERE.
