SPECIAL DCM WORKSHOP: Learn To Love the Rope with Geoff Garlock

Tragedy+time=comedy or so they say. So let's put that to the test. A workshop where the focus is trying to write comedy about the painful things that have happened in our lives (breakups, divorce, depression, death in the family etc). Let's try to make hilarity out of the shit mountain that is life

Students should bring one sketch that is based on something real/sad in their personal life that they are trying to tap into

* You must be listed on the DCM website as a performer in a group from out of town to enroll.  The registrar will check for your name and if you are not listed when you enroll, you will be removed from the workshop and lose $55.

Geoff was the bass player in the influential hardcore band Orchid and the bass player in the less influential but to a select few band Panthers. He currently plays guitar in the metal band Low Estate and bass in the hardcore band Ritual Mess. He also composes solo synth music where he is slowly ripping off the horror soundtracks we all love. If you do not know him from either of these lifestyle ventures, you might know him from sitting on his couch with his wife and his bulldog, listening to weird metal and prog rock records and explaining to anyone who will listen why all eras of Genesis are important to the world.
