This workshop is a one-week process of improv and discovery, giving you the tools you'll need to write a successful script. Each student will improvisescenatios as devised by others in the class. Improvisation will be recorded so that you can take them home and write a scene based on what you've done in class. At the end of the week there will be a public reading of written scenes before an invited audience.

You do not need to be an accomplished writer, but some improv experience is helpful.

This will be co-taught with Ron West and Catherine Butterfield.

As an actor he recurred on the NBC series Third Rock from the Sun and was a frequent guest on Whose Line is it Anyway? He?s that guy in the Cheerios commercial whose wife wants him to go to the gym.
