When it comes to acting, one of the most of the important things comedians and actors need is practice. This workshop is for comedians who don’t have the same experience as trained actors, but are still getting the same opportunities in screen acting. In this practice-based approach, Maria will work with you on script analysis, character breakdown, and audition technique to find your own unique way into the script, and help you make strong, intriguing choices casting directors will remember.

Maria Shehata is an award-winning comedian and actor, with over ten years of experience in New York City, LA, and London.
