Solo Writing and Performance Workshops with Comedy Central Stage Artistic Director Paul Stein Saturday July 18 10a-1p , 2p-5p & Sunday, July 19 10-a-1p, 2p-5p
San Francisco, CA
Description Two days of workshops on how to take your solo show and turn it into a piece that best showcases your story and your specific gifts. Taught by Paul Stein, the former Associate Producer of the HBO Workspace and currently Artistic Director of the Comedy Central Stage in Hollywood, this workshop will show you how to create and make decisive choices with your show... not obvious ones. Through lecture, handouts, video presentations, discussion, and an opportunity for critical analysis of your work, this two-day workshop will touch upon writing, shaping, performing and producing your unique idea. Helpful to the beginner or experienced solo performer, these workshops are for everyone from stand-up comedians to performers with more dramatic pieces. Mr. Stein's unique look at solo performance, gained from a dozen years of working with solo shows in Hollywood and at numerous festivals, will provide a perspective that cannot be missed.
This workshop is proudly presented by W. Kamau Bell & The Solo Performance Workshop.
