What's So Funny? Weekend Comedy Intensive


Resident Playwright Scott Woldman 

An intensive workshop for those looking to develop and/or hone their comedy-writing skills for the stage, screen and/or live lit.  Learn and develop concrete writing tools that can be immediately incorporated into your work to make it funnier.  On Day 1, participants will learn the tools and apply them to their writing while receiving coaching from the instructor. Participants will then be given the evening to complete a short piece so they may return on Day 2 to hear it performed by professional actors and get feedback in a safe, supportive environment.

Since 2005, Scott Woldman has been using these comedy-writing tools to create multiple series of late-night comedies for theaters in the U.S,  write award-winning dramas and dark comedies, option two screenplays, represent Chicago at the National Poetry Slam, and become an ensemble member at 2nd Story, Chicago's premier storytelling ensemble.
