Comedy workshop coming up

Staff reports

A lot of us think we’re funny from time to time, and now here’s a chance to polish your sense of humor with a real pro: Kat Simmons, producer and emcee of the Carson Valley Inn’s monthly Comedy Night Live shows.

Simmons conducted a highly successful Comedy Workshop last summer, and she’s doing another six-week Comedy Workshop at the inn this winter.

Weekly classes start on Jan. 29 and culminate on March 5, when participants will “strut their stuff” at a special comedy showcase. Her comedy workshop is perfect for anyone who has ever thought about being a comedian, wants to improve public speaking skills or just has a hankering to perform on stage.

She’ll cover methods of stand-up comedy, formulas for joke writing, the definition and development of your own stage “persona” or attitude, incorporating humor into your career and more. If you’re interested in the course, give Simmons a call at 265-7647 for more information on curriculum, costs and times.

The Carson Valley Inn/Hotel/ Casino/RV Resort is located on Highway 395 in Minden, near the junction of Highway 88.
