Joel Jeske – Lessons in Comedy Performance!

I usually don’t use this space to promote events, BUT this one is SPECIAL!

Joel Jeske is teaching a class in ‘Comedy Performance.’

I sat down with Joel yesterday, and he mapped out the classes and what he would be teaching. I was thrilled to hear all about his theory about comedy, and it’s application in his upcoming classes. I wanted to help promote these classes since I know they will be wonderful. Here is the scoop from the workshops information.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Physical comedian and clown, Joel Jeske, is teaching a class. He is teaching five lessons in comedy performance: One a week for five weeks. Lessons will be focusing on character, presence, creating material, personal schtick, physical storytelling, and how to never be dull on stage.
It is for any performer or actual person who wants to be funnier.
