Can anyone recommend some basic beginning acting classes for someone with no experience? It would be fun just to try as a hobby and not looking for anything too intense. Community colleges? Workshops? Anything casual, but worth it?
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
I can think of one in Wisconsin whose schedule just opened up.
Join the UM BB team.
Bump for the weekday crowd.
Are you willing to do nude scenes?
When called to the casting couch are you prepared to earn your role?
I can. First, what do you want to learn (fun acting games or how to do scenes/monologues)? Also, how much do you want to spend?
I want to be a movie star. Big budget, blockbuster type movies. I don't want to spend anything.
The one Mitch McJesus is in seems to be working out.
Good luck in porn.
Anything from Fingercuffs?
Join some local improv clubs.
Tim Holmes, a high school friend of mine, and the Strongman in Oz the Great and Powerful, runs some sort of acting classes in MI. It may be down to YouTube stuff. Give me a bit, I will check. (or you can google. He is on Twitter)
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Are you interested in something that involves couches or buses?
Location: Mumbai, India
If you are female, I'd recommend Omars.
Lots of good actresses there.
Probably a good start, but here's how I see that going:
There are 7 guys and 2 chicks in the Improv group. They don't want to let the new guy do anything, or don't want him to join in the first place. They're pretentious about what "real comedy" is, which means that no one else finds them funny. The chicks aren't any good, but they get the most interaction from the group because all of the guys are trying to laid. In the end, no one laughs and no one gets laid.
It would just be a hobby. I don't have any experience and thought it would be fun to try it during the summer, maybe. I'm not looking for anything expensive or too complicated. Thanks.
try practicing in front of the mirror as you are putting on other people's skin.
Whoa whoa whoa. You gotta work up to that couch and/or bus. He should start out as a pizza delivery man like the rest of us.
University of Michigan: Keeping ugly girls out of East Lansing since 1837!
Desired roles: pizza delivery guy, plumber, pool boy, fire fighter, etc.
Take classes at a CC with a good reputation for theatre. Avoid Music Theatre. See if you like it, there are some politics when it comes to auditions and the personalites in that cliche are pretty interesting. Not sure where you are located but a lot of towns have summer theatre, audition for a minor role and take it from there. Good luck

There are a number of really decent CCs in the metro area that have good classes you can take. Go Comedy! in Ferndale has a wide range of improv and scene based classes if that is your bag, and from what I remember, they are not too expensive. They also give you performance opportunities. Also, look into the Michigan actors' studio (8 weeks at about $250 total).
IMHO, avoid the community theatre route unless you know who is teaching and trust them. It's a mixed bag and most of those people don't know how to run a class. It ends up being a waste of time. Plus, if their productions suck, the classes probably suck too.
Just like anything in life, you get what you pay for. Most of the really fun/good classes are taught by people who know what they are doing and will subsequently cost more. Losing the film incentive really hurt enrollment at a lot of these places and shut down a lot of classes, so there is also that to contend with.
OP is acting like a puss.
Watch Hamlet 2.
I volunteer to help you "run lines" for any of these roles.
