The Feminine Comique - Level 1 - Monday - March/April 2020
The world of stand-up comedy can be an isolating place for women and for this reason many women are deterred from stand-up early in their careers or before they have even begun.
The Lincoln Lodge has created The Feminine Comique a beginners foundation course that strives to give prospective female* performers the confidence and skills they need to begin a career in stand-up comedy.
The Feminine Comique gives students the opportunity to spend five weeks in a supportive all-female environment while learning the fundamentals necessary to write and perform stand-up comedy.
The course is founded on the comedy principles of the critically acclaimed Lincoln Lodge, a national leader in cultivating and developing new comedy talent. Join one of Chicago's top comics, Alex Kumin, for a course in stand-up comedy, offered by the locally and nationally revered Lincoln Lodge, Chicago's top stand-up and variety showcase.
The six weekly 2 hour sessions of this course will focus on:
Finding an attitude and persona
Connecting with an audience
Creating a cohesive set
The class requires no previous stand-up comedy or writing experience and culminates with a live performance of the material developed in class.
Class Schedule is as follows -
