* * * We are currently on a one-month hiatus. Check back for new events anticipated in mid-October! * * *
Discover a safe, supportive opportunity to find and refine your funny! Whether your interest is stand-up or improv, join like-minded individuals for weekly comedy rehearsals at a private residence in north Redondo (Casa de Bo).
Stand-up Workshop (Thursday evenings):
Practice the essentials of stand up through this hands-on, 8-week series of workshops. We'll review the "Natural Laws of Laughter" and how to put them to use to enhance your own comedy sets. Each workshop is a stand-alone unit, but will build upon what's been presented previously.
Bring your existing material (or start from scratch) along with a notepad and pen. The workshop will consist of discussion, exercises, and rehearsal, all with the intent of refining your set and repertoire. We'll also occasionally venture out into the real-world to perform at live open mic's in the region!
Suggested donation of $10/workshop or $30/month (4 workshops), includes open mic session. Bonus: Happy (half) Hour beverages included*!
Stand-up Open Mic (Thursday evenings): Rehearse your set and try out new material in a fun, safe, and supportive environment... without having to leave the South Bay to do so! You'll have a stage, live mic, and real-time supportive feedback (from your colleagues, not the mic) to help enhance your comedic skills.
Suggested donation of $3/session or $10/month. Bonus: Happy (quarter) Hour beverages*!
Improv (Monday evenings): Exercise your comedic muscles in a fun, safe, and supportive environment... without having to leave the South Bay to do so!
Refine your listening skills, develop new voices & characters, use your body, and engage your audience with hilarious authenticity. You'll have a stage, occasional props, and real-time supportive feedback to help enhance your improv skills through warm-ups and a variety of improv games. We'll also occasionally venture out into the real-world to watch live improv shows in the region!
Suggested donation of $3/session or $10/month. Bonus: Happy (half) Hour beverages included*!
* Bonus beverages: Arrive up to 30 minutes early for the Casa de Bo Happy (portion of an) Hour, featuring sparkling juices, coffee, tea, water, and "light" alcoholic beverages...
Never done improv or stand-up before? Although priority will be given to those looking to refine and rehearse their existing craft, rookies are welcome to attend and learn-by-example subject to space restrictions. While instruction per se is not the primary objective of this meet-up, there will be a focus on reinforcing good technique and observing the "Natural Laws of Laughter."
Note: All are welcome subject to space constraints. The suggested donation is likely less than you'd spend at starbucks simply thinking about being funny (and your beverage is included), but don't let a lack of funds discourage your participation. Major credit cards accepted.
