Full Bio & Programs
Develop your writing and performance skills for page, stage, or life with comedy guru Beth Lapides, who combines spiritual insights with comedy writing and performance pointers.
This workshop focuses on
- Storytelling and public-speaking skills
- Generating original content
- Integrating creative work with other aspects of self-study
- How to stay light about enlightenment
- Illuminating comedy as a personal, self-revelatory art form and craft
- Using comedy as a tool to handle life in these crazy, changing times.
Exercises, dialogue, and personalized writing assignments lay the foundation for understanding your comic persona and leave you inspired, uplifted, and laughing.
