FREE WORKSHOP! May 10th! Sign up now!
Most comics are told “just get funny,” but where do you begin to “get funny?” Any comic will tell you that sitting down and actually writing material is one of the hardest parts of this business. What they won’t tell you is how they actually do it themselves and how to find an approach that will elevate your act.
At this free workshop, two proven comics will light the way for anyone looking to take their material to another level. “Crafting the Joke” takes an analytical approach to joke writing. Jeff Lawrence and Joe DeVito will focus in on economy of words in writing as well as discipline. The workshop will also include key guidance for those looking to write a stand-up set for TV.
Speaking will be LBC founder and pro comedian Jeff Lawrence
Guest speaker : Joe DeVito

- Joke writing
- Economy of Words

- and much more
light snacks will be provided.
