Absurdity: Playing The Fun Without Getting Lost in Wackytown
Absurdity is a powerful tool in comedy. It can open the doors to some surprising moments. It also has the power to spiral out of control. This lecture will discuss how absurdity can be used to elevate your comedy while still managing to "stay grounded."
