Have people always told you that you should be a comedian? Or have you secretly wanted to become one? Well this class is for you! Students will get an understanding of the pre-corona scene, impromptu public speaking, and it will have featured guest speakers. In this workshop, we will break the barrier between improvisers & stand up comics, and we will focus on finding the funny in your life. From story telling to crowd work (or riffing), we will lay the foundation for students to have a better understanding of the art of making people laugh. Remember, there are multitudes of unique styles & perspectives, it is all up to each individual's process of discovery (everyone will write differently). We are all humans- if I can do it, so can you! Note: Very few people start off hilarious, so even if you don't think you're funny, many of the professionals weren't even the class clown!

About Larry

Larry Dorsey Jr. is a storyteller born & raised in San Francisco. He is known in the city for his adventurous lifestyle and as a radio personality for the premiere Hip Hop station in the Bay Area (106kmel #iHeartMedia).

Before being involved with BATS, he crafted his talents in various forms of performance arts. Music/Poetry (shout out to Youth Speaks) has been a part of his life since childhood. He is also a life long joke teller, first learning the craft of Stand-up while working security at The Punchline/Cobbs Comedy Clubs, finally hitting the stage after taking a workshop at the famous San Jose Improv.

He graduated from SF State University majoring in Creative Writing, Academy of Art University majoring in Motion Pictures & Television, and the Meisner Technique Studio acting program. He has also studied at different theaters around the Bay (i.e. the A.C.T.)- in classes ranging from clowning to public speaking.
