Serious is the Rubber Chicken - The Craft of the Humorous Essay

What: If you read McSweeney's and go "Pssssh. I could do that," then this is the class for you. We'll dissect outstanding examples of the humorous essay and you'll create your own. 

Please note: this is NOT a joke-writing class (though we will be writing jokes); this is not a sketch-writing class; this is not a stand-up class. 

If you've ever gone "Those twee little hacks at the New Yorker are getting on my last nerve," or "Good god, Onion, you've done it again," then come learn how to hone and refine your own stuff, whether personal essay, cultural criticism, or just good old ranting, this is the workshop where you can find and sharpen your comedic voice and learn how to colonize the minds of others with the funny of your words.

When: Monday nights, 7-9pm for 6 weeks

Oct 3 - Nov 7

Where: Bespeak Studio 737 W Wrightwood (E of Halsted)
