*I was reminded again recently how difficult it is to describe the Comedy Dojo workshop and the whirl wind of experience it is. ;)

First off it's NOT a typical comedy class, it's a personal coaching situation where newbies and experienced get what they need to move up.
Yes it's a live 2 part workshop but it's also a 'focused' focus group there to work on you and your material, it's coached stage work, a writing round table, personalized online help and plenty of reading material with insights and information supplied via a constantly updated website.

Since we are ever growing the dojo is also a network with dojo'ers in many different cities and regions of the country....it is simply the place where education meets opportunity to meaningful experiences and breakthroughs.

Video Web Dojo? Who wants it?
Coming soon to a web near you.



Somebody once said that there was a thin line between laughter and pain or tragedy. 
My thinking is that a comic's job is to dance over and back from this line bringing a little pain on the return to release and soothe with laughs. Sometimes too much can be brought back and it doesn't work, but the very art form itself is founded on the attempt.
