FREE LECTURE- The Key to Comedy: How to Keep them Laughing

Actors, have you ever been told to “make it funnier”, “hold for laughs”, or “play up the jokes?” Have you been taught the “Rule of 3’s” or to identify which characters have the set up and which have the punch lines? Do you worry about the comedic beats in a scene? These tips and tricks can actually kill humor. But it’s possible to nail comedy without sacrificing good acting!

When you plan out your choices in advance, you lose spontaneity and leave little room for individual expression. In this lecture, Howard will teach you the true key to comedy and how to keep casting directors, producers, and audience members all laughing hysterically!
Join Howard as he draws from iconic performances, shares insight from the comedy greats, and walks you through his steps for approaching comedy.
DATE: Thursday, October 1st at 6pm (PDT)
