Amazing U Presents: Don White's Comedy Workshop

Tuesday, Oct 9, 16, 23 - 7:30-9:30pm

DON WHITE SAYS:
It is easy to think that certain great comedians are just simply born with an extraordinary God-given talent for engaging an audience and that there is nothing that a mere mortal man or woman can do to acquire these skills. This is, in my humble opinion, simply not true.
