A thorough (and funny) physical warmup, followed by exercises in creating a character, falls, classic gags, the structure of comedy, and Comic Dance, with attention to musical and dancerly values.  The class culminates in a mini-presentation by the students (for each other) of a brief routine they create during the class.
