About this Event
Comedy is Hard:
No one told me there would be math involved. A multi-camera comedy, commonly known as a sit-com, has a fairly rote formula behind all the wacky hijinks. Being funny IS something everyone can do, but there is an art to uncovering and serving the script. In this class, we explore the traditional roles of comedic acting, analyze the structure of a comedic script, and uncover our own brand of humor that can create magic. We will include improv as well as scene work. Scenes do not have to be memorized, but it would probably help with timing.
Kim Rhodes is best known for her television roles as ultra-mom Carey Martin on Disney Channel’s “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and the intrepid Jody Mills on CW’s “Supernatural”, where she survived for ten years. She has been passionately despised for her brief but eventful tenure as Linda Barnes on “Criminal Minds” and had a glorious appearance as the first Kobali, Ensign Lindsay Ballard, on “Star Trek: Voyager”.
Kim graduated Summa Cum Laude from Southern Oregon (now) University with a BFA in acting and then completed the MFA program at Temple University in Philadelphia. She spent many happy years doing regional theater in places like the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon and American Player’s Theatre in Spring Green, Wisconsin. She also worked in a veterinary clinic and has neutered a cat.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, daughter, and numerous pets. She resists all advice and risks her spinal column on an almost daily basis due to her passion for riding horses and teaching the love to youngsters.
