Solo Comedy with Paul Thomas

SATURDAY 2/15 130PM - 430PM

Create great solo pieces that maximize your comedic abilities and keep audiences wanting more of you. For the experienced and not-so-experienced, this class will help you build momentum with your writing goals and help make you a more effective overall performer. This class focuses on crafting structurally sound scenes, creating multi-faceted characters, and performing with confidence. LIMITED TO 10 STUDENTS.

Paul Thomas was recently named to's top 20 stand-up comics in Chicago, and is a member of Chicago Underground Comedy.  A jackass of all comedy trades, last year he performed character pieces in the inaugural Just for Laughs Chicago, and in August he premiered the full-length version of his new solo show "Comedogenic" at the New York International Fringe Festival. His solo work also includes the questionable love story "Waitress Wanted," which was a selection in Live Bait Theater's Fillet of Solo Festival in 2006. In 2007 he brought his first monologue show "Late Bloomer" to The Playground Theater in Chicago and the Piccolo Spoleto Fringe Festival in Charleston, S.C.  Every Thursday he hosts Happy Hour, a solo workshop/show at The Playground Theater.  He is a former member of the Defiant Thomas Brothers, winners of Best Sketch Group at HBO's 2005 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.  The past few years have put him in front of, behind, and around the camera, and in July his music video "Tighty Whiteys" was screened at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. His other shorts can be viewed at  Much cooler is that last year he was featured in The Breeders' video "Walk It Off."  Paul, Jeff Madden, and Cork Kangas comprise Lola Balatro, the post-grunge acoustic com-rock band that is scorching the earth with hits like "I Got 2 Black Friends" and "Questionable Beef."
