Everyone’s a comedian, or at least every water cooler joker thinks he is. Those willing to put their money where their smart mouths are have the good fortune of a boot camp to test their dick-joke resolve. Area legend Bill Bushart serves as “drill instructor” for regular six-week long comedy courses held at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle. It’s been said that you can’t teach funny, but you can learn the basics of joke construction, writing and performance techniques, which the acerbically funny Bushart jovially teaches to all comers, both industry hopefuls and even those just looking to develop a little public speaking confidence.
