Funny Girl

Funny Girls grow up to be Funny Ladies!

You could be the next Amy Sedaris or Tina Fey but you’ll never find out unless you give it a try. Funny Girl, from the award winning collaborators at Gnap! Theatre Projects, brings you a 5-day comedy intensive for teen girls. While most comedy camps teach one aspect of the comedy spectrum, Funny Girl is bringing in professional comedians from all aspects of the comedy world to inspire and entertain the budding female comics of tomorrow. Each day will focus on a different area of comedy expertise, giving every camper the opportunity to find her unique comedic voice.   The camp will cover-

Stand Up – Stand up can be intimidating but we’ll break it down with guests and exercises.

Short Film – Students will be given the resources to create their own comedic short.

Improv – Austin’s a hotbed for improv and the students will get to learn from some of the best improv teachers out there

Sketch – We’ll take advantage of SVT’s great stage, props, and theater community.

Comedic writing – Every student will be given a journal at the beginning of the week to keep all their writing in.

Everyday they’ll be a History 101 on the great female comics as well as a ton of talented guest speakers who are experts in their genre of comedy.  On the last day we’ll have time for the students to perform their favorite pieces from the week for friends and family.  Register now, classes are filling up.

“Somewhere around the fifth or seventh grade I figured out that I could ingratiate myself to
people by making them laugh. Essentially, I was just trying to make them like me. But after a
while it became part of my identity.” –Tina Fey

June 20th through June 24th, 9 to 4 pm, $175
