Ready to Unleash
Your Funny?

Our Comedy 101 course with Alyshia & Anna will teach you the fundamentals of making your comedy auditions SING!

We will cover the LANGUAGE of comedy, breakdown and score your script/sides, and test drive the musicality of your comedy chops using MULTI-CAMERA sides.

Why Start With Multi-Camera? Because this particular genre uses all of the comedy rules and is the most challenging to ground.

You will (re)discover your sense of PLAY. You will increase your confidence in creating compelling comedic self-tapes without having to push the FUNNY.

Clients & Students Say...

“Anna LaMadrid is hands down the best coach I have ever worked/taped with. She’s not only one of my most favorite comedic actresses, she has a unique understanding of how to actually direct comedy. She just gets it. But most importantly, she is a master at breaking down and then emphasizing character in the sometimes narrow context of a single scene. A seemingly simple moment of depth that will undoubtedly take you that extra mile with casting. I trust her implicitly. Work with Anna! You will book!”

Imani Love, Actor

“Hands down the greatest tools, guidance, and coaching (for comedy) I’ve received in my 10+ years of working in this business-I booked a Guest Star role in my very first coaching session with Alyshia Ochse!”

Alicia Urizar
NCIS, For The People, Code Black and more.

Anna is the best coach for self tapes I’ve ever worked with. As an actress herself, she brings all she has to the session. She offers up her instincts with so much generosity and conviction that it really helps take you where you need to go. I’ve always felt so proud of the work we’ve done together and I feel like I continue to learn so much from her. She is truly the best.”
