Do you have an interest in Stand Up Comedy but not quite sure how to get started? This class will help you understand how to come up with material, how to write a joke, put a comedy set together and how to deliver it on stage. We'll get into everything you need to become a successful comedian. We believe that anyone has the ability to be a good stand up comedian, but very few people have the ability to commit to writing and performing on a regular basis. This class is intense. You are expected to show up for all of the sessions and do all of the work. You will be required to venture out on your own at least once during this class to visit an open mic in addition to one that we will all attend together. If you do the work, follow the process and meet the requirements to pass the class, you'll also receive a certification that you can add to your resume as a nod to future employers and a unique talking point. The main reason for us to host this class is to build new comedians. If your work is solid enough, we'll put you on our stage on Friday nights. Taking this class is not a guarantee that you'll become one of our performers, but it should be your goal in taking this class.
