Workshop at CVI offers comedic coaching

Staff Reports

“You should be a comic” is what spurred most of the people to take Kat Simmons’ stand-up comedy workshop at the Carson Valley Inn. She’s had a lot of interest from locals, as well as from out of town.

“We need a place for people to get up and work on their acts,” Simmons said.

They have heard or believed that they are funny their whole lives and this is a way for them to take a crack at it, she said. However, not everyone who takes the class wants to be funny.

“Some just want to be able to speak in front of a crowd and not pass out, or to find a way to add humor to their careers,” she said.

Simmons believes that comedy is a healing art and both the audience as the performer benefit from the experience.

“Often times, comedy gives a voice to someone who may not have been able to express themselves before,” Simmons said.

For some of Simmons’ students, tomorrow, March 5, will be the night they get to share their dream and talent with the public. Performing will be Ted Sullivan, K.D. Campbell, Gina Hart, Brandy Nelson-Mares, Kinsie Damon and Warren Bottino.

The comedy showcase will be held in the Shannon Ballroom at the Carson Valley Inn in Minden. The non-smoking show will begin at 8 p.m., with the doors opening at 7 p.m.

The next Comedy Night Live is March 13, with Mrs. John Hughes headlining the show.
