Steve Kaplan’s comedy courses have been has been attended by top writers, performers, directors and executives from such companies as DreamWorks, Disney, Aardman Animation and others.
The Comedy Intensive workshop will help you understand comedy from the inside out: what it is, how it works, why it works, what’s happening when it’s not working and what you can do to fix it. We’ll explore the Hidden Tools–useable, practical tools like Non-Hero, Metaphorical Relationships and Straight Line/Wavy Line—principles and techniques that you can apply immediately to your work. The workshop includes exercises and writing activities, as well as a liberal use of clips from current and classic comedies to illustrate our points and principles. It’s a very interactive experience, and we tend to laugh. A lot!
