This will be a great intensive workshop. Ric love actors!


Ric: "I like to start with a Q&A. Then I like to go workshop style where people go up one at a time with scenes they have chosen but in front of the group. Then feedback in front of the group.


I think people get more bang for the buck, this way. And I want to see how people see themselves. What material are they choosing. What their pictures look like. I take my time and they get a lot of feedback and insight into the business of acting as well as how to approach a scene/audition/breakdown."

ON-CAMERA COMEDY INTENSIVE: $280.00 | Platinum: $260.00 
4 Weeks of Superb TV Comedy Training
Thu January 26, 7:30 PM
Jackie Geary breaks down how to be funny almost mathematically. Ninety percent of all funny stems from what we call opposites (or reversals); and while these are discussed in many comedy classes, Jackie's class is the only one that breaks down all the different KINDS of them -- how to spot those given to you by the writer, how to create them on your own, and how to create more of them than ANYONE else will. Cause even if the funniest read doesn't BOOK you the job, it's what will be remembered. And what will get you brought back in. That's the name of the game.


She'll also break down her 4 essential components for a comedic scene, and the 18 tools she uses to make any read complete. IMDb her -- even when you see a dramatic credit listed, she's been cast as the comedic relief. She knows how to book comedy. Let her show you how :)


Every student is guaranteed to WORK TWICE EVERY CLASS!


Jackie Geary is a familiar face on television, appearing on 'HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER,' 'WEEDS,' 'SUBURGATORY,' 'RIZZOLI & ISLES,' 'BONES,' 'CASTLE,' 'THE UNITED STATES OF TARA,' 'HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER,' and in the memorable "Fanilow" episode of 'WILL & GRACE.' She is also known for her recurring role as quirky agent Susan Grady on 'NCIS.' Recent features include a supporting role in Roland Emmerich's 'WHITE HOUSE DOWN.'


She credits her analytical Ivy League education (Bard), combined with her love of comedy, for the technique she teaches in her On-Camera Comedy intensive.

2 MAJOR NETWORK COMEDIES
Sun February 12, 10:00 AM
Allen is wonderfully passionate about acting and spends detailed and attentive time with each actor. Here are some quotes from actors who've taken his workshop.


"Had a very great one on one chat after my scene about what type of roles he would cast me in."


"Best cash I've ever laid down for a CD workshop. Gives the best question and answer I've ever attended. His individual feedback is super thoughtful. Wish every CD took the work as seriously."


"Very funny, honest, gave great feedback, spent ample time with every single actor, taught us a ton of useful information about what his office is looking for and about comedic acting in general that was all very helpful. He also gave me feedback about my type, which was extremely eye-opening and valuable."


Allen has worked in casting for the last 10+ years, primarily on 1/2 hour TV comedies, both single and 4-camera. Further details can be found at IMDB.


Actors should either pick their sides (one-on-one material) from those available at his web-site, www.allenhooper.com or they can bring their own material.” If you use something else, please send a copy to info@castingnetworkla.com so we can forward it to Allen.


SPECIAL NOTE: Since Allen gives such a fabulous information, we are going to hold a group Q&A at 10am and schedule the One-on-Ones beginning at 10:30pm. You are NOT required to come to the Q&A, but we highly recommend it. Extremely entertaining and informative!


Format: bring a 2 minute prepared scene, we provide a reader and then you have 3 minutes to chat. Your times will be emailed to you by 5pm the day before. You may send time requests to TCNTimeRequests@gmail.com
