Equipped with 20 years of teaching and performing experience, including appearances on ABC, NBC, CBS, and Comedy Central, and an ongoing workshop, the Philadelphia Comedy Academy, veteran jester Brad Trackman teaches budding comics and other performers the ins and outs of standup during his information-packed workshop. Throughout the four-hour laugh lesson, Comedy A through Z, protégés learn how to create and write for a performance persona, carving out an approach that is both unique to their strengths and resilient when dealing with humorless crowds of scarecrows. As Brad covers such basic essentials as stage presence, making a proper entrance, and calming a sweating microphone, he will also dish out tasty tidbits for building a career in comedy and landing roles. In 2011, two of Brad’s students made their debuts on The Tonight Show. On Sunday night, Brad practices what he preaches during a live performance, further demonstrating how to put comic know-how to use.
