Comedy is more than a good time, it's also a coping device. Maybe you've explored why you chose this coping mechanism of making people laugh, but now it is time to dare those things that block you to get completely out of the way. Scenically, we will say what needs to be said as the people you play, stay present, and let the comedy come from the audacity to speak the truth; We will adjust for simplicity, and let the complexity be shown in your acting, not your dialogue.
Part a trust-builder, part hardcore scenework with side coaching, and part unrelenting straight talk, with playful & therapeutic style.
