3 Month Workshop

Is it time to just tell that story? Finally?

Solo Showdown Epic Performance is a 3-month workshop facilitated by internationally acclaimed comedian Alicia Dattner. With a group of high-caliber, like-minded creatives, we’ll use a combination of acting techniques and preparations, readings, and group feedback, to get you ready to perform.

This workshop culminates in a live, online performance of your story at the end of August! AND we’ll have an optional live, IN-PERSON weekend workshop and theatrical performance in Los Angeles you can join too, if you feel inspired. Come make:

  • A solo show
  • A comic monologue
  • A keynote speech
  • A standup comedy set
  • A TEDx Talk

Take your show from page to stage:

  • Come for the knock-down, drag-out full self-expression you crave
  • Stay for the creative and personal growth you won’t find anywhere else
  • Leave with a solid recording of your show that’s ready for bookers to see
