TCPTCP – Comedy Performance

Perfect timing, bold character choices, finding your voice…these are tools that can be used by actors inside and outside of the comedic sphere. Our Comedy Performance classes provide students with comprehensive curriculums that challenge our students in a safe and supportive environment.

Acting Essentials:  In this course students learn the fundamentals and elements of comedic performance in a playful, group environment. We’ll explore the technical aspects of acting as well as the building blocks of vocal, physical, and emotional expression, listening, agreement, making choices, and working in an ensemble.

Prerequisites for Acting Essentials: N/A

Performance Lab: In this course students gain valuable performance experience as they are coached and  directed in multiple comedy sketches. Students will be assigned scripts on week one and work on memorization, blocking, characterization, and execution to get a feel for acting in a sketch comedy show.

Prerequisites for Performance Lab: Acting Essentials or Comedy Performance 1 at The Comedy Project, or Acting 1 at another institution, or 6 months of performance experience.


Performance classes are not offered every term. If you would like to be notified the next time they become available please e-mail amy@thecomedyproject.com.
