Did you ever want to write your own audition monologue? Have an idea for a character you want to expand on? Create solo content to perform online from home? Or maybe even write and perform a full one-person show someday?
Paul Stein, Executive Producer of the Comedy Central Stage, will share the secrets of what works, what doesn’t, and the “three things” you should always do when putting together a performance monologue, building characters and creating your own solo show.
This weekly online workshop will offer: writing exercises, assignments, examples, discussion, in-session performance, Q & A, and much more.
