Class Description: Learn to initiate off of an opening. This crucial skill lets you start scenes right in the middle of a comedic situation. You will use a monologue or a "living room" discussion to inspire scenes. We'll get into how to have an idea that's not too big or too small. How to use the idea of "voice of reason" and "fool" to frame the comedy of an idea. You'll learn to work with others to get your scenes started FAST.
