Event description

Description

ve you ever wondered if you could stand alone with a mic on stage and make people laugh? It's a huge high when you pull it off - but the fear of bombing can be nerve-wracking. This workshop is a great way to get started. It's challenging but fun - in 8 weeks participants come up with strong material and the kind of confidence it takes a year or more to build just by doing Open Mics.

7-9pm Thursdays Jan. 18 to March 8 (8 weeks) + show Sat. March 10 (TBC)

Instructor: Kirsten Van Ritzen is a professional entertainer and experienced teacher. She is acclaimed for her unique curriculum and supportive style of teaching. Each week you will get the chance to perform and receive constructive feedback, and be given creative assignments for the next class. The group will also discuss topics in comedy, get insider tips, and generally laugh a lot.

No previous experience of any kind is required, just bring a sense of humour, a pen and a large old-fashioned paper notebook. Make time to do 30 to 60 minutes per week of comedy 'homework' outside of class. Open to adults 19+.

* Register here on Eventbrite if you wish to use Credit card. You may also pay by etransfer, cheque or cash (204.75) please contact Broad Theatrics to arrange.

FAQs

VENUE

The class is an accessible venue with free street parking nearby. Please do not contact James Bay Horizons Society volunteers or staff with your questions - direct them to Broad Theatrics.

What is the refund policy?

Fee is fully refundable up to 7 days before the first class. Once the session begins there are NO refunds for missed classes or for dropping out, because it is too late for someone on the waiting list to take your spot. However if life gets busy and you have attended less than half of the classes, you can ask to attend a future session of standup for no additional charge.

I have to miss a class due to my kids/work/the flu, etc.

We understand. If you miss a class, the instructor can send you a brief email about what you missed. If you don't have time to do your your homework, that's okay too.

Wait - what is this about homework?

You will get weekly comedy writing assignments – don’t worry, there won’t be grades and nobody cares about spelling. Try to set aside at least one hour per week outside of class to create comedy.

What if I am not funny?

Yeah you are. Sign up.

Can I contact the instructor with questions?

Yes. Email Kirsten at broadtheatrics@yahoo.ca or call 778.440.0408
