Week 2 of the Rules of Comedy with Nick Anderson

Tonight was Week 2 of the Comedy workshop with Casting Director, Nick Anderson.  The workshop is at AIA Actors Studio in Burbank, CA.  

Nick went over 4 of the 8 comedic devices in comedy. Afterwards, he passed out scenes and asked us to disect the jokes and pick out the the ‘triplet” and the comedic device.  Then we worked on the jokes and talked about why we made each choice. 

This class is fascinating.  Nick talked about how he can tell the difference between a smart actor and an actor who is ‘accidentally funny”.  And as a Casting Director, he wants to work with a smart actor because they are reliable.
