Steve Martin has signed on to teach an online crash course in comedy, releasing a trailer for his upcoming series with the online education platform MasterClass. According to Martin, the classes will focus on his specific process, including performing, writing and editing.
“Remember, you are a thought machine,” Martin says. “Everything you see, hear, experience is usable. Whatever makes you unique as a performer, do it, and know that there is room for you.”
Martin’s class will feature over 25 videos and a downloadable workbook. Participants will be able to upload videos of their routines and get feedback from fellow students, while Martin will critique select student work. Pre-enrollment is open now for $90.
Other upcoming classes include Shonda Rhimes’ writing for television, Hans Zimmer’s film scoring and Frank Gehry’s design and architecture.
