Finding the Funny: Using Humor in Stories 

Story Facilitator: Steve Daut

Sliding Scale Tuition: $5 minimum, $25 suggested donation, on up to $50

Humor is a powerful technique in telling stories, not only for tall tales and funny stories, but also to help audiences open emotionally to more difficult stories. Humor can be effective in providing “comic relief”, allowing an audience to hear important but troubling stories without becoming overwhelmed. Yet there can be pitfalls, so it’s important to understand what makes humor work and what to avoid. Through discussion, examples and exercises, students will discover different types of humor, and will learn techniques for discovering the humor inherent in their stories, and presenting that humor effectively.
