“Oddly Enough (Queer Comedy)” with Caro Hernandez is a comedy writing workshop for the queers who like to make jokes and the jokers who like to make queer. You’ll get to think about what you find funny and then create something that makes you laugh. Maybe even perform what made you laugh for the people in your lives that typically laugh at the things that you laugh at. That is to say there may be a performance element to the workshop if you’re up for it! The word performance can seem daunting to some, however I think we can queer what it means to perform comedy and make it an empowering experience for all. After the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to share their work on stage at Artistic Vibes.
Materials: Participants will need a pen and paper to write on.
Things to think about and bring to the class: Your favorite joke or a joke that you think is particularly queer and think about things you feel strongly about. This could be anything from hating traffic to loving pop tarts. It could also be some quirky observations you’ve made. Bring your thoughts and feelings to the class. If you forget them at home, you can always borrow some from the other participants.
Happy thinking everyone!
WHEN: Saturday, July 12th from 12 pm – 4 pm.
WHERE: Artistic Vibes, 12986 SW 89th Ave, Miami, FL 33176. Free street parking.
COST: *Pay what you can afford. Suggested donation: $20. Donate online here or in person on the day of the workshop. RSVP below.
CARO HERNANDEZ was born and raised in Miami, Florida. She studied acting at New World School of the Arts High School, and went on to pursue the comedic field of gender studies in college. After years of people telling her “you’re funny”, she decided to take her gender studies degree to the stage (at the coffee shop that has an open mic once a month). She has worked with the Have-Not’s comedy company, Performing Arts Exchange, and hosted a weekly open-mic at the Open Stage Club in Coral Gables.
