    Solo comedy class taught by Paul Thomas

    If you've been in a creative rut, and/or you lack written material, this solo comedy class will get you in gear. It's also a great jumpstart if you're thinking about doing a solo show. Taught by all-around comedian Paul Thomas, the class focuses on crafting structurally sound scenes, creating multi-faceted characters, and performing with the confidence and discipline of a good stand-up comic. If you are a stand-up comic, this a great opportunity to stretch out. There will also be opportunities to perform at Thursday Happy Hour and Grafitti. Class size is limited to 6. To register please email Matt Barbera at matt@the-playground.com .

    Saturdays 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
    January 9, 16, 23 February 6, 13, 20
    Cost: $200 ($25 discount if registered before Dec. 17)

    For a second I thought this was taught by Paul F Thompkins. Hooray for literacy.
