Funny or Die Workshop with
Matt Miller (TP&R Casting) & Rachael Patterson (Acting Studio Chicago, Studio Director)

You know you’re funny, but every time you have a commercial audition you feel like you don’t bring your best stuff. Or maybe you’re unsure of how much you can really play with the copy. (How much improv is too much? Not enough?) Or maybe you do get called in for the occasional sitcom, but the audition always feels like a bad date. What gives?

Let Matt Miller and Rachael Patterson help you turn up your on-camera funny (to 11!!!). In this two day workshop, Matt will tackle the commercial side of funny advancement by helping students identify and parse commercial copy structure with an eye towards improvisation, navigate the art of the ad lib, and gain confidence in a variety of commercial audition scenarios. Rachael will focus on audition technique for sitcoms: avoiding common pitfalls, making strong choices, and unleashing your sense of play.

Get serious about your funny…and have fun doing it!
