Laughter is a gift, and how lucky are we to receive it in the form of comedy! I had a great time with Anne Ganguzza and the VIPeeps teaching a class all about Finding the Funny in your scripts. We dove into character archetypes, elements of comedy, why the truth is funny, how people process pain, and how to bring your own life experiences to comedy. Who knew being funny was such serious business?
“If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.” – Carrie Fisher
We even got a sweet testimonial from voice actor Debra Elaine! She said, “Way to go, Bonnie! That (Find the Funny) was SO much fun! I LOVE doing partner reads! I don’t see that option out in VO-Land very often and I didn’t realize we were going to have the opportunity do them tonight, so it was a really nice surprise. Let’s make this a regular offering. I KNOW it would be popular!!”
Big thanks to Anne Ganguzza and the VO Peeps for having me, I’d love to teach this class again in the future!
If you want to explore finding the funny one-on-one with me, get in touch and we’ll talk!
