Comedy Writing and Performance with Eddie Brill

SATURDAY 2/18 @ 10:00am - 4:00pm at DSI Comedy Theater


Eddie Brill (worldwide touring comic, and former Talent Coordinator for the "Late Show with David Letterman") will instruct you in the key elements towards gaining the insight and understanding necessary in developing and retooling your show, from a live stage performance to a smart and hilarious television experience.

Each workshop participant receives individual coaching on the spot from Eddie, and from fellow classmates; allowing for a unique student-teacher perspective in the process of building a firm foundation for you to truly understand who you are on stage. Make no mistake; this rare opportunity for comics to be completely honest with themselves and each other is for the seriously minded only. So leave your egos at the door, and get ready for a hardworking day you will never forget.

In order to achieve maximum focus with each member of his workshop, Eddie allows only a handful of participants in each session; so we suggest you act soon. (READ: Register now.)

The two times I’ve taken this class are still among the most valuable experiences I’ve had as a standup. I’ve had three truly outstanding teachers in my life, and Eddie is one of them. He’s a special guy. Intelligence, experience and kindness off the charts. I recommend it to absolutely any comic, at any level of experience.
