THIS class will go beyond that. You will learn the Mechanics, but also Improv, Hosting, How to Handle Hecklers, Story-Telling, Act-outs, Characters and more. Everything you will need to become a truly well rounded performer. Not simply a mechanical joke robot.

How does it work?
Each class begins with a lesson that covers many of the key points that every comic should know. Then each student is given time onstage to share ideas with the class, try out new material, or just talk about their experiences. The teacher and the rest of the class will help you turn your ideas into solid stand-up material that will have them falling out of their seats!
Enrolled students will be part of the Comedy Class Showcases. A performance show specifically for those enrolled in the comedy classes.
