Learn techniques for joke writing and delivery, where and how to get practice, and how to avoid many common mistakes new performers make. $20 suggested koha, but pay what you can. Taking it further – do you want to punch up your material? Need a brainstorming session? Do you have a performance video you’d like to review? Neil Thornton is available for private one-on-one writing and feedback sessions in person or on Zoom. Contact Neil for his rates. Find out more by joining the mailing list.
