503Studio Masterclass: Writing Comedy

As most of us aware, the key to great timing is ….comedy.

In this masterclass, Ola Animashawun invites you to take some time out to develop that comedic timing and join him in the quest to explore the art and craft of writing funny for performance and to help you try and find that funny bone, muscle or gene.
