Writer's Center Comedy Alumni page

This page is for alumni of the Writer's Center Comedy class. Taking the comedy class gets you the privilege of sending me manuscripts and audio to review, and announcements of when we're going to meet at Writer's Center events to talk about comedy projects. Alumni get free manuscript reviews and free follow-up sessions at Writer's Center events. Post at will. E-mail questions to me at basilwhite Aa@at7T basilwhite dooO0tt coo0Ommm, or...

basilwhite: "infinite adjectives"

Got a question from an alumnus:

Why do you refer to "who, how, what, where, when and why" as
"infinite adjectives," and what's the source of that
phrase?
-------------

Looked for a phrase to represent this group of questions. These are actually different parts of speech in English, but in French (?) they're grouped as the "infinite adjectives."

Lemme go look for a better phrase: "interrogative words." --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interrogative_word

How's that?

BTW, I've also updated http://www.basilwhite.com/comedyworkshop to include Scott Adams' six comedy adjectives - http://www.basilwhite.com/comedyworkshop/default.htm#scottadams

basilwhite: I can die now.

Rachel, an alumna from the Applying Standup Comedy To Other Writing Forms class showed up Thursday for her first open mic ever. Destroyed. Every joke, bam bam bam like a pro.


Don't take my word for it, ask Mike Diesel and Carl LaBove. We were all pounding the tables in the back. Rachel's a natural standup comic, and I helped her take the first step onto the comedy stage. I have nothing left to prove to anyone. I made comedy better having been a part of it. I can die now.
