Writers Room for "Late Afternoon" w/Maggie Ritchie


Cost: $5 coaching fee per session

Does your child have unique observations on our world? Do you often hear him or her say something that you think would be perfect in a late night show? Comedy Uprising has a unique opportunity for kids and teens ages 11 to 19 to write, stage, and perform in a talk show format.

From crafting the monologue to performing in the show’s segments, young comedians will collaborate in a safe, positive space to build their self-esteem. For a few hours over a few weekends under the guidance of local comedians with a wealth of knowledge and education experience, kids and teens will learn how to create jokes and characters, develop comedic game, and understand and implement the basics of successful sketch comedy.

This writer’s room culminates in the above unique performance opportunity at the nerve center of New Orleans comedy - The New Movement.
