El Director Martha helps you craft your story. And then she gets you to perform the hell out of it. Martha works with performers from all backgrounds (theater, storytelling, stand-up, dance, music, corporate "suits"). She asks a lot of questions. She pays close attention. She offer's constructive feedback and gentle structure.
Street Cred Martha is the director of the internationally acclaimed W. Kamau Bell Curve: Ending Racism in About an Hour, the basis for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, a late night talk show on FXX. Martha worked as producer on Totally Biased, sculpting content and coaching performance.
