Coping Through Comedy explores how comedy can be used as a healthy coping tool. Comedian and cancer survivor, Charity Sadé will work with you to find and incorporate humor into difficult lived experiences through workshops in comedy writing, stand-up, and comedic storytelling.
In this 6 week course with instructor Charity Sade, you will learn how to prepare, polish and perform a five-minute comedic storytelling piece or stand-up comedy set. The class will work on joke/story structure, comedy writing, and performance skills. The attendees will also get the opportunity to “workout” their material during each session, with guided feedback from the instructors and their peers. At the end of the course there will be a comedy showcase featuring members of the class!
Writing with others can be fun, inspirational, and healing. The intention of the workshop is to provide a safe and creative environment for people to be able to express themselves, and find the humor in their experiences
This workshop will provide a space to respond to comedy writing prompts(working individually or as a group), share work, and participate in discussion surrounding the writing process.
