*I was reminded again recently how difficult it is to describe the Comedy Dojo workshop and the whirl 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.
