Get to class!
Joey Paul Jensen’s specially designed acting curriculum develops the actor to feel the power and uniqueness of their talent. Classes cover a wide range of skills including comedy improv, dramatic improv, voice and speech, scene study, photographic memorization, cold reading, script and working on camera.

Classes are throughout the year and each set of classes has a specific concentration for a selected time frame. All classes are on camera and parents are welcome to see playback each week to see the progress. Joey believes working with kids and teens in the business is a big commitment and having an open dialogue with parents about performance builds confidence and command for auditioning in person and self-taping.

Laughing Matters! 5 Day Stand Up Comedy Class starts Sunday Oct 21
With an opportunity to perform for friends, family and industry guests at a live show Nov 14th!
LAUGHING MATTERS is an awesome learning experience about performing Stand Up Comedy. Young actors learn the fundamentals of writing and performing stand up comedy. The class begins with using the history of one's life to consider the funny stories they have from their past and today.

The actors work with professional comedy writers, comedy show runners and a director to create 2-3 minutes of personalized material that serves as their individual piece.

Over the course of the classes, the material is refined just like on a sit-com to see what jokes work. We aim to punch it up, to maximize the humor for the piece. After the five day class is over, all the actors then have the option perform in a show where each can show off their unique and individualized material for friends, family and our invited industry guests! 

*IT IS NOT MANDATORY TO PERFORM YOUR PIECE AT THE SHOW. ACTORS CAN FEEL FREE TO TAKE THE CLASS TO BUILD CONFIDENCE IN LIVE PERFORMANCES, WRITING, AND MORE. THE SHOW IS SIMPLY A BONUS OPTION IF ANYONE WANTS TO PERFORM THEIR PIECE IN FRONT OF A LIVE AUDIENCE!*

Stand Up Comedy is one of the hardest thing to do in the industry, and actors who learn it can really raise the bar of the entirety of the work in comedy and overall performance.

SCHEDULE:

After You Register, You will recieve a questionnaire sheet to fill out with as much detail as possible about YOU and your life experiences. You will then work together with our industry writer & use that as your material for your stand up routine! 

Throughout these days we will have:

Our 2 Guest Comedy Writers

Producer/Show Runner/Comedian: Billy Riback (Wizards of Waverly Place, Suite Life, Appearances on Showtime, HBO)

Director/Actor/ Warm Up Pro/ Improv Guru: Ezra Weisz 

DAY ONE: We want to get to know YOU, and how you perform.

DAY TWO: The first draft of your routine will be written, and you will work with Joey Paul, re writes will be made to perfect your performance!

DAY THREE/ FOUR: Perform and work on your routine with the new rewites until you reach perfection.

Scenes from Class
“When you communicate well, it doesn't matter if you are an actor or a doctor or a scientist. It helps you have good relationships.”
Film Camp 2017 was a blast!
Weekly training classes are back in January.  
This is a great way to learn technique and discover your unique storytelling style.
“ I started my acting training when I was 9 with Joey Paul in her classes, and have been training with her ever since! 

She helped me perfect not only my comedy skills but also worked with me on my drama work which lead me to land my first TV role on “Criminal Minds”. From there I was able to put my comedy training in action as a series regular on “Henry Danger”. 

I love working with Joey because she is really direct in her coaching. She is so fun to work with and gives you honest critiques, then works with you on specific helpful notes to get you to the level you need to be at, and make you the best actor you can be.”
