FOUR WEEKS to a New Stand-Up Comedy Routine
As outlined in his book, STAND-UP COMEDY, Walt Frasier can help you develop a new routine in four classes. Don’t try and write a full routine before coming to class. Trust the system and let’s find your funny together.
- STEP-ONE: Brainstorm Ideas
- STEP TWO: Brainstorm Details
- STEP THREE: Outline Your Routine
- STEP FOUR: Find The Funny
At each step of the process you will get on stage, or share your work via ZOOM. Prepare yourself before getting stage with that class’ study guide. HAVE FUN sharing your ideas, stories, commentary etc. THEN Analyze your work to prepare for a better outing next time. After four weeks of brainstorming, performing and analyzing the process, you will discover a new comedy routine. It may not be ready for primetime, but it will be ready to work and rework on a comedy show. Don’t rush the process.
When we jump to FIND THE FUNNY the first class, or try to script out our routine we are short changing the process of Improvisation and interacting with the class. We fail to listen to our selves or the crowd because we are focused on reading or reciting from memory the written routine.
Along the way we will discuss some important performance tricks to shape your routine. You will learn the words are such a small part of our comedy process. Presentation skills, timing and more will shape our ideas in to winning routines.
Word of advice…
