Getting and sharing a laugh can be one of the most exhilarating experiences. We will discuss comedy’s role in our lives and how nearly every subject can be developed into a comedy piece. You’ll learn to be your authentic self and to get smiles and downright belly laughs as you experience the different comedy genres.
Each week we’ll learn about a different comedy art form, including theatre, standup, storytelling, sketch, improv, literature and laughter wellness. Along the way, we’ll experiment and try each of these styles in class. We’ll also discover the importance of comedy in aging and community.
Note: This is a revised version of Finding Your Funny: Discover Standup Comedy, from fall 2018.
