That's What I Teach You to Be...Stupid, Silly & Free.
EVERYONE. IS. FUNNY! Philippe Gaulier showed me that. And I can show you!
It's so simple. All you got to have is...
FUN! PLEASURE! JOY!
Like you did when you were a kid, remember? There is no formula in my class. No method. All we do is play games. And through games we discover our beautiful, vulnerable idiot. And when you show the audience your beautiful, vulnerable idiot they don't laugh from the head. They laugh from the belly. They laugh so hard they don't even know why their laughing, they laugh so hard they might just pee themselves. If this is the type of laughter you seek? Then my class is for you. No experience necessary. Just bring your spirit! Note: Class size is limited as I like to give each individual a lot of stage time to discover, explore, fail, fail again, fail better, and to find that unique individual side-splitting hilarity that you and only you have to offer the world.
