with Charity Sade

This class is targeted toward Cancer Patients/Survivors and Caregivers/Co-survivors (partners, friends, etc…). The series will be held virtually from 2:00-4:00pm for 6 weeks. Participants are expected to attend all 6 classes, beginning on Sunday, February 21st.

In this 6-week course with instructor Charity Sade, cancer survivors and co-survivors will learn how to prepare, polish and perform a five-minute comedic storytelling piece by working on timing, delivery, story structure, and comedy writing.

Each week, the class will be led by Charity Sade, and a guest comic, who will run through writing exercises, performance skills and techniques (e.g., how to hold a mic, where to stand, etc). The attendees will also get the opportunity to “workout” their material during each session, with guided feedback from the instructors and their peers.

Classes begin on Sunday, February 21st and are weekly on Sundays for 6 weeks from 2:00-4:00pm. Participants are expected to participate in all six classes and are encouraged to record their final piece for inclusion in a virtual showcase. Please contact us at 202.483.8600 or if you have any questions about this program.Comedic
