C3? Ditching the Detachment with UCB's Zeke Nicholson
Improv is all about finding the funny, but the truth is we often sacrifice the best version of our scenes in the interest of getting to a quicker and thinner laugh. This workshop will focus on grounding, commitment, and acting, in the interest of organic exploration, rather than arbitrary invention that ultimately prevents our scenes from fully evolving. At the end of this, you will win a damn Oscar in every scene (BAFTA? Full disclosure, I'm American).
Zeke is a performer/writer from the hard streets of Rhinebeck, New York, an idyllic small town where he endured hardship every day as the son of a loving college professor and one of 3.5 black kids at his high school. He attended Williams College in Massachusetts, where he was a decathlete and captain of the varsity track team. After making fun of theatre kids for a couple of years, he decided to become one and join the improv team, which is essentially the plot of "High School Musical. After graduating college in 2011, Zeke moved to LA and started taking classes at UCB in an effort to become the next Will Smith. It's going well! You can catch him at UCB with his house improv team, "Cardinal Redbird," or breaking barriers (reinforcing stereotypes) with his all-black, all-male comedy group "White Women."
