For years, Steve Kaplan has been the industry’s most sought-after expert on comedy. Besides teaching at UCLA, NYU, Yale and other top universities, Steve created the HBO Workspace and New Writers Program and was co-founder of Manhattan Punch Line Theatre. He has worked with such companies as Dreamworks, Disney, HBO, Aardman Animation, and his book, The Hidden Tools of Comedy, a best seller on Amazon.com and Kindle, has been translated into Russian, French and Chinese. (I’m sure there’s a joke in there, somewhere.) Steve has been teaching his Comedy Intensive workshops around the world to thousands of students, with workshops scheduled in Los Angeles, New York, London and Toronto.
