Improv 4 Kids, the educational outreach program for EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH, is offering a five-week comedy class for kids and teens (ages 9-17). Starting April 21, the class will meet for two hours every Saturday at noon. Admission for all five classes is $75.
The class is great for beginners and those looking to further their skills in both Improv and Stand-Up Comedy. In addition to great training for the future stars of the world, comedy classes are the coolest way to teach creative thinking and writing, communications (public speaking, listening, eye contact, focus), team and leadership. The teacher, Walt Frasier, emphasizes having fun on stage and being a sponge off stage, watching and learning from teachers and peers. All of Mr. Frasier's students remember his mantra, "Big Voices. Big Choices."
Over 1000 students grade 3-12 participate EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH classes via schools, camps and non-profits. Mr. Frasier currently serves as Director of Instruction for the Comedy Hall of Fame Foundation designing programs and training teachers for the Laugh It Out program. This semester over 200 New York City students will be eligible for NYC DOE graduation credit (English elective). As, Artistic Director (and Associate Producer) for Eight Is Never Enough (AKA LMAOff-Broadway and Improv 4 Kids) Mr. Frasier has performed over 3000 shows since 2002 at clubs, theaters, K-12 schools, colleges and private events. Other credits include TV (Letterman, MTV, VH1, WE, NICK, commercials), various indy films, Theater (Off Broadway, Broadway tours and regional theater) Opera and concert soloist.
