This sliding-scale workshop is an opportunity to learn and develop stand-up writing, stage presence, performance skills and how to ultimately get in front of other people with polished punchlines.
No experience required. All skill levels welcome.
Note: This specific class is intended for those who self-identify as a People Of Color (POC) so that we can create a safe space for attendees. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for registration questions.
Workshops will be held in the Vigeland Rehearsal Hall at Portland Center Stage at The Armory.
