About the Class: Have you ever thought about trying stand-up comedy? Or do you want to take your stand-up and comedy writing to the next level? This workshop will help you find your inner comedic voice, whittle down to find the funny, or punch-up what already is. This is a four part series that covers the writing, performance, and business aspects of comedy. Each class is an hour and a half, and students should bring a pen and paper to each session.
This course is broken up into four sessions spread across two weeks. The first week will have two classes (on Tuesday, 1/23 and Thursday, 1/25) dedicated to comedy writing and theory, and the second week will have two classes (on Tuesday, 1/30 and Thursday, 2/1) dedicated to the performance and business side of comedy. Each class runs from 6:30 to 8PM. Each session can be taken as an individual workshop, or the whole course can be taken as a full introduction to stand-up comedy. The pricing varies based on how many how many sessions you'd like to attend, so please review your ticketing options careful to pick the experience that's best for you.
