A 6-week series! CLASSES START THE WEEK OF JAN 4 and continue through mid Feb, mornings or early afternoons Pacific time. (There will be no classes Jan 22-29). Specific dates and times are tba.


Having a fully-realized character that you love, that brings you joy and brings joy to others, is a lovely tool in shitty times.


CHARACTER COMEDY INTENSIVE is an elite (but not too elite) and rigorous (but not too rigorous) bootcamp for your character development work.


This 6-week program is designed to help you create material for your character (online and/or for the eventual stage) and strengthen your character’s ability to improvise and play fiercely in an ever-shifting performative landscape.


We will meet twice weekly, totaling 150 minutes a week: one duo session with me and another performer, and one small group session (max: 8 participants) to share work, improvise and play. You will be expected to do some creation work on your own during the workshop, but you set your own pace and goals.


This intensive has limited spots. If you’re interested, fill out this form BY DEC 20:


COST: $250 USD
This is a 6-week course, beginning the first week of Jan. The exact dates will depend on what group you’re in.




MELODRAMA ZOOM-O-RAMA is a weekly 2-hour workout for keeping your play skills finely tuned, your performance chops up to snuff, and your on-camera fabulousness even more fabulous.
In this 6-week workshop, we will delve into onscreen play, solo and with partners, exploring high camp forms of melodrama, horror, joke-erotica, interpretive dance and deep performance art.
You will hone cinematic and DIY “moviemaking” techniques so that you can be your own ridiculous cinematographer, exploitation director, and horrible actor, all in one!
This workshop is ideal for performers in quarantine who still need to W-E-R-K, and for all who are ready to get wild for the camera to fill others with delight.
In this workshop, expect the following:
-Physical, full-body improvisation
-explorations of DIY cinematography and effects
-a deeper sense of play in your onscreen improv work
-skills and concepts that translate easily to the stage (whenever that happens)
Each workshop will have max 8 participants, so you will enjoy the intimacy and relationship-building of a small and geographically-diverse group.
Cost: $150 USD
Note that FB only lets you post an event for 2 weeks. This is a 6-week course, beginning the week of Jan 4 and ending in mid February (there will be no classes the week of Jan 22-29). The exact dates will depend on what group you’re in.
