Comedy Castle emcee seminar this weekend


This Saturday, July 23rd, The Comedy Castle in Royal Oak, Michigan will be presenting a seminar for potential emcees from 12:30 to 2:30 PM. The seminar will be taught by Kevin Wheeler, the club’s long-serving room manager. Kevin, if you didn’t know, is also a successful comedian with sixteen years of experience who has shared the stage with such comedy luminaries as Howie Mandel, Kevin James, and Lewis Black. The fee for the seminar is $25.00.

Kevin will show you the ins and outs of the job, and since he’s the guy who picks the emcee and the list for the Wednesday open mike show, him having a familiarity with you and your act should pay dividends down the road. While I don’t believe that a “comedy class” is really necessary to break into stand-up comedy, this is something different. Think of this as advanced training to become an specialist. The emcee position isn’t one that’s often coveted, but its a paying, entry-level job in comedy – and this is a time when ANY paying job in comedy is hard to come by. If you want to work at the Comedy Castle, consider this a foot (or a hand or a leg) in the door.
