In the very near future I'm going to begin conducting web-cam comedy workshop sessions for individual comics and groups. I've finally, after a long considering period, become convinced of it's effectiveness and financial worthiness for all concerned. It seems to be the natural progression that a new technology gives us and shouldn't be resisted.
I'm excited about the opportunity to reach out across the entire country or world even to work with and coach new and experienced comics and comedy writers.
The test runs I've done proved to me that this kind of web workshop grows into a very personal way of coaching and communicating. After a very short while it's almost like I'm in your home and in your face kind a trainer. That personal touch I think is a good thing for workshop sessions no matter where and how.
When you think of it this should be great for everybody BUT the oil companies. No gasoline or parking expense will be had by all. Sit in the privacy of your own home or office and learn the how to's of stand up comedy and comedy writing via a pro comedy writer and headlining comic - ME! Not to mention have a focus group to gain ideas from....that is exciting.
If you choose the group session you will actually be working live with not only me but a party of people from all over the US instead of just your hometown that share your passion for an art form of laughter. The feedback will be amazing.
What about stage time you ask? That's a good point and one I looked at when considering involving myself in this venture. Stage time is very important to learning stand up. I would definitely encourage you to perform at a nearby open mic whenever and where ever possible. Going over such experiences would be part of the session.
Never doubt though that my Web Comedy~Dojo without question would prepare you for being on stage and give you insights for what to expect. You would go up informed on what to do and ready with funny material the very first time. THAT is making good use of stage time!
*Experienced comics may be looking for more of an individual writing web-cam session?
That can be arranged also.
If you'd like to be in on the first web-cam dojo workshop sessions feel free to contact me thru website or email for details. Schedules are being looked at now and THAT is yet another benefit. YOU can decide what is the best time for YOU! I'm lovin' it!
Comedy~Dojo online coming soon.
