Solo shows are about telling a story, exploring an idea, or both. There can be plenty of laughs along the way, but the laughs support the story or theme. This course will familiarize students with the variety of ways a solo performer can engage an audience, and generate solo material. Many people have a strong impulse to reach an audience, but their material and talent doesnt fit within the joke-joke-joke structure of stand-up comedy. Solo shows offer a broad range of possibilities to explore the stories and ideas people can craft into something fit for the stage. Students will learn about the different styles of solo performance - monologues, clown, characters, and others - as theyve been developed by professionals.
