RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Emmy Award-winning journalist, author and emcee Ira Joe Fisher will hold his workshop, “Speaking Fearlessly,” featuring career-affirmed strategies for effective speech, presentations and high-stakes conversations, on Tuesdays from March 24 to May 12 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at The Ridgefield Playhouse.
Fisher’s seminar shows attendees that the ability to communicate effectively – for sales, for professional and family relationships – lies within.
His career includes radio and high-profile TV work, including his dual role as weatherman and features reporter for WABC Television in New York City, where he divided his day between the "Morning Show with Regis Philbin and Kathy Lee Gifford" and Channel-7 "Eyewitness News." He performed the same roles on WNBC a few years later. An essayist and weather reporter, he racked up two regional television Emmy Awards along the way.
Such work landed him the position of co-host on "P.M. Magazine." In addition to his broadcast career, Fisher is an accomplished thespian. A member of Actors’ Equity, he regularly performed in the long-running off-Broadway musical “The Fantasticks” beginning in 1995, where he acted, sang and danced.
In the summer of 2003, he performed the role of Henry VIII in the musical “The Prince and the Pauper” at New York City’s Lambs Theatre, and he performed the role of Monsignor Buckley in James McLindon’s drama “The Garden of Dromore,” part of the New York University Play-Reading Festival.
Registration for the workshop is $360 for tuition; call the Ridgefield Playhouse box office at 203-438-5795 or signup online here .
