Comedian Ever Mainard to Lead Class on Riffing
Comedian, Ever Mainard, is slated to lead a two-hour workshop called “Get Riffed! Riffing for Stand-Ups and Storytellers.” Techniques in this course will give performers the confidence to take a topic and run with it. Participants will use improvisation to find new angles, expand old jokes and connect with the audience.
This workshop will be offered on Saturday, September 14 at 4pm. Registration is open to all students, but previous improv or stand-up experience is recommended. For more information, visit the class information page.
