Central Library to Host Comedy Workshop

The Glendale Central Library will host “Storytelling Through Comedy With Renée Santos” on June 22 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In this course participants will learn to focus on the basics and students will begin to find their voice and define their style onstage. Students will then take these skills and develop a stand-up set that tells their story.

The intensive will discuss in a truncated fashion where to find material, joke structures, writing skills, stage presence, the basics of crafting a set and how to be in the moment. Using the tools of stand-up comedy, students will contribute to the documentation of the history of the LGBTQ+ community in Glendale.

The course concludes with students recording their 3-minute set on video that will be preserved as part of Glendale’s historical record and, if they wish, uploaded to Glendale Library’s Documenting LGBTQ+ webpage and YouTube channel.

Renée Santos is a comedian, actress, journalist and storyteller. She’s appeared on comedy specials and shows for several networks including Showtime, NuvoTV, HBO Max, NBC and more. She’s also active in the L.A. comedy scene, appearing at the Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory, and the Hollywood Improv.
