“I think physical comedy is an amazing asset because it tells a story that's more universal than just language and dialogue.” – Actor Josh Gad

Physical comedy is perhaps one of, if not the oldest, form of comedy. Focused on manipulation of the body for a humorous effect, it can include slapstick, clowning, mime, physical stunts, or even making funny faces.

Make ‘Em Laugh is a 12-week theatre class designed to teach students about their comedic roots, introducing them to the art of physical comedy through a series of games and exercises. The students will work to create etudes – or studies – of silly physical actions AND a group scene.

There will be a final presentation on Saturday, April 13th.

This class will be held at:
The Center
118 W. Market St. • Akron, OH 44303
