I have been working on my speaking voice as a stand up comic for years now; how to project, where to push air from (diaphragm) and how to deliver on stage with or without a microphone. How to prepare material, if applicable to allow for a smoother delivery instead of pausing or stopping or adding words like "uh".
I have some formal training from college but most of my learning has been from trial and error in a live comedy setting. I believe I could help newer speakers learn basics quickly.
My name is Eric, I graduated from Southern Illinois University Carbondale in May 2014 with a Bachelor's in Cinema and Photography with a minor in theater concentrating on play analysis and writing. I have experience in script writing, story boards and editing. I have been doing stand up comedy for over 4 years. I have a background in improv comedy as well. My goal as an instructor is to help students express themselves without shame or fear; sometimes being open and honest is difficult and I'd like to help people find their creative core so they can develop their true voice.
