Learn how to use your untapped humanity and embarrassing moments in a way that can reach a wide audience. You will finish this class able to fill in the blank, \\\"----------- is the story of my life.\\\"Each student leaves class with a six-ten minute showcase-able set of autobiographical material. The first three classes are filled with fun exercises to derive all the life experience that already lies within you. From that hilarious material, you will find your final piece. The last class focuses on polishing and perfecting your story,
which will stand alone but can also be a part of a bigger solo work.
Learn to dig inside your own life to find humorous, relatable, material,
which unifies an audience by making them laugh at their own experiences through your brave performance. Additional focus is on getting through the fear of being judged for our honesty, and true-life experiences. In the past, many students have gone on to produce autobiographical one-person shows, or perform on the storytelling circuit, or complete their memoir.

Students should have access to a computer and stable, robust internet access, webcam & microphone.
