A laugh a day improves the mood, exercises the belly, and makes pet hyenas feel less lonely. Cultivate the hilarious critter within with today's Groupon: for $49, you get admission to one four-hour "Find Your Funny: The Comedy Workshop for Beginners" with Adam Ace at the Marina Village Conference Center (a $100 value). Workshops take place June 11 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., as well as June 12 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
As an author, public speaker, and multifaceted comedian, Adam Ace teaches workshops on the versatility of comedy. In "Find Your Funny: The Comedy Workshop for Beginners," the joke-deprived can learn the basics of comedy and how to bring more laughter into a quiet life or a currently unsuccessful career in laughter canning. Aspiring quippers can expect lots of small-group activities, improvisational exercises, and a Q&A with Adam, and those with a fear of public speaking can choose to test their nerves in front of the class, overcoming a long-held fear of being insulted by a microphone. The workshop also includes a 30-minute comedy show with Adam.
Amid his adventures as a comedian, author, and public speaker, Adam has inspired a collection of comic books. The Adventures of Adam Ace place Adam, The Man in Red, on adventures of disappearing dreamgirls, missing minivans, and producing emergency laughter bubbles next to the mouths of especially tough crowds.
