Testimonials: Rhonda S - Rhonda Can't Help "I took a stand-up comedy class here, and thoroughly enjoyed the time and structure of the class, which really helped me bridge from past work in comedy before COVID-19. The class blends both theory and practice, as well as exposure to the professional comedy community in South Florida. I recommend this class to anyone with an interest in comedy both for fun or more serious endeavors." Brendan F "I recently took the stand up comedy class at Sick Puppies in Delray Beach. The class had a clear cut goal: Get 5 minutes of high quality material that you can put on stage. We covered joke structure, how to open and close, mic work, stage presence, editing jokes, timing and delivery. We also spent time on learning what not to do and how to avoid classic pitfalls of new comedians. The difference between Sick Puppies and other classes is the boutique setting and personal atmosphere. I strongly recommend it to anyone looking to get into stand up, newer comedians or someone looking for guidance along the way."
