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

First off it's NOT a typical comedy class, it's personalized coaching, it's a situation where newbies AND experienced comics get what they need to move up...it's a live 2 part workshop but it's also a 'focused' focus group on you and material, it's coached stage work, and plenty of insights and information supplied. 

Since we are ever growing the dojo pops up in all regions of the country....it is simply the place where education meets opportunity with meaningful experiences and breakthroughs.
-------------------------------
 
Web Dojo? Who wants it?
Coming soon to 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 but the very art form itself is founded on the attempt. The release of pain.
