“Comedic Acting Can be Taught!” with Devon Dubnyk
Sunday, November 20, 11:00am – 5:30pm
There’s no denying that some people have instinctual comedic skills, but if that’s not you, YOU CAN LEARN to be a better comedic performer!
SYNOPSIS: We will be undoing the idea that comedy cannot be taught. By exploring comedic timing, scene pacing, and a variety of exercizes we’ll turn even the most serious actor into a better comedic performer.
