Gay Monologues (Pride Workshop) with Mark Rennie
In the immortal words of Jerri Blank, “I’ve got something to say!” If you got that reference then this is the workshop for you. Break out the wigs, Stevie Nicks shawls, and Divine references, this is a safe space to get queer. Write that "Truman Capote trapped in a Shake Shake” monologue you’ve always dreamed of. Just because it’s a monologue doesn’t mean it can’t be visually exciting, bizarre, and heighten to the heavens. Come to this class with some ideas and leave with a finished script.
Prerequisite: Sketch 101
Class meets in Room #215
There are no refunds for this course.
NOTE: While all are welcome (always!), please be aware that this class is focused towards LGBTQIA+ identifying improvisers.
Mark Rennie, teacher
Mark Rennie is a California native, and currently lives in Los Angeles. A writer since childhood, when in the 4th Grade he wrote an award winning short story that featured a Intergalactic Warlord being frozen with an ice ray and then being melted with a heat ray. He then took those creative energies and attended Art Center College of Design to study Film.
Writing credits include Funny or Die's "Gay of Thrones," The Onion, and even some Minnie Mouse cartoons that are a real palate cleanser.
At UCB he's been lucky enough to study under Nick Wiger, Chris Kula, Julie Brister, Brett Christensen, and Drew DiFonzo Marks. He's written for Not Too Shabby, Sketch Cram, Quick & Funny Musicals, Uncle Irish's St. Patty's Day Shillelagh and more.
Mark writes a recurring variety show called "Those Magnificent Moms" on the UCB stages a few times a year. He also does improv now and then.
