What you'll learn in this stand up comedy class:

In this first level of Stand Up Class, students will work on discovering their own comedic sensibility and shaping that into a clear and unique point of view. While using material from their own lives, as well as observations from the world around them, each student will leave this level with an understanding of the basics of writing and performing stand up. The class culminates in a showcase where each comedian performs the material they created in class.

All of our courses are taught by veteran instructors who are also long-time performers. Classes meet at our theater OR at one of our nearby rental spaces just a short walk away.

All classes at this location

You can find us at the back of the Parking Garage #3 (Structure Three, whose entrance is on 4th Street just north of Santa Monica Blvd). We are the only awesome theater in the alley that has painted brick, and shouting coming from it. Parking The easiest place to park is in Parking Garage #3 (Structure Three, whose entrance is on 4th Street just north of Santa Monica Blvd across from Chase Bank.) It's free for the first 90 minutes and only $1 for the first hour after that. That means 2 1/2 hours for $1 any time you park! It's a $1.50 every half hour after that. Cheap and easy parking FTW! There is also some surrounding street parking that is free after 6PM on 5th street and east.
