"Propaganza!" by Ben Weber

Like the actor, singer, dancer or mime, the comedian's body is their instrument. And with it, they play with the expectations of the audience. But when a comedian chooses to be a "prop comic," expanding their performance toolkit to include objects, they are often dismissed, sneered at, and excluded from the canon of comedy greats.

If great comedic material comes from our shared experience and the absurdity of everyday life, why not mine the physical stuff around us to create killer comedy gold? In this way for all ages, we will use techniques from improvisation, clown, sculpture, and performance art to greet the hullabaloo of Times Square and create original prop comedy routines.

This way holds 15 people and will be held in English but Ben also speaks French.
