Finding Characters focuses on developing characters for the stage.

The workshop will cover practical aspects of performing characters live, like finding character quirks,  developing comedic timing, and using physicality to discover character movement.

About the instructors:

JEFF KENJI SLONIKER is a founding member of UCBLA’s longest running sketch group, The Midnight Show. Jeff is a writer/comedian whose credits include writing for G4’s Attack of the Show, FOX’s The Daily Habit and ADHD, Comedy Central’s TripTank and Nickelodeon. Jeff has appeared on Reno 911, Parks and Recreation, Key and Peele, and Silicon Valley. He’s also voiced animated characters on MTV’s Popzilla, Fox’s ADHD, Trip Tank, Nickelodeon, and American Dad. He is currently a creative producer at Ryot Films.

CURTIS RAINSBERRY has appeared on The late Late Show with James Corden, Key&Peele, Jimmy Kimmel Live, tosh.0 and some other shows and commercials and cool stuff, but when you add them, it just makes the list too long and seems less impressive. He was a part of LA sketch group The Midnight Show, and he does a “just ok” job of writing bios.
