“I realize that humor isn’t for everyone. It’s only for people who want to have fun, enjoy life, and feel alive.”

-Anne Wilson Schaef

Unleash your inner comic, develop your confidence, discover your spontaneity, and study the craft of being funny. This one-week session led by the funniest theater artists in Central Virginia will give you the chance to learn and fine tune your improv skills, explore physical comedy & clowning, and even try your hand at writing and performing standup and sketch comedy. The camp culminates in a world-premiere comedy showcase performance on the Gibson Theater Stage with improv, standup, and the sketches that you and your new friends wrote.
