Want to tell powerful true stories without schmaltz to a packed audience of adoring fans? Let comedic storyteller and Moth host Corey Rosen share his tips for turning heartbreak, humiliation, and tragedy into a riveting five-minute piece that is the perfect mix of vulnerability and comedic vavoom. In this five week San Francisco storytelling workshop, you’ll learn how to find what’s funny in your foibles, structure a compelling story and connect solidly with your audience. You’ll do fun, improvised storytelling drills, learn about the structure of performance essays. Corey will even teach you how to expose your narrator’s flaws while also persuading the audience to root for you. By the end of the class, you’ll have crafted two polished stories based on upcoming Moth themes that you can take to the stage. You’ll get targeted feedback on your tales to help you polish up your diddies, and you’ll perform one of them at a show at a professional theater! Before you know it, you’ll join the ranks of the 10 students who won StorySLAMs and 2 who won GrandSLAMs from taking this class.
