Break down the mysterious doors of the unknown. Rip a hole in the wall of the impossible. Take a ride through your brain tubes and accidentally intentionally wander through your experimental waves. Through study, conversation and practice, you will experience and create what somebody somewhere will call “experimental comedy.” Students will perform an original comedic piece at a live class show upon completion of the course.
