This intensive one-day workshop helps break down the process of joke writing from conception to punchline. It's great for people who are looking to get started in standup or who are in their first few years of comedy and want a bit more structure to their writing process. Everybody will come away with the beginnings of material that they could perform and also a better understanding of how standup works with tips on revising and presenting your material.
Alex Falcone is a Reno native, now living in Portland, OR and touring as a professional standup comic and writer.
