Class Description

Description

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

The Stand Up Level 1: Beginning course is aimed primarily at comedians looking to gain a basic understanding of comedy structure and students with no prior stand up experience, as well as non-performers looking to gain a basic understanding of comedy and public speaking. 

Topics covered in this course will include:

  • Understanding basic joke structure
  • Becoming comfortable walking and talking on stage
  • Building confidence and self esteem
  • Gaining a basic understanding of stand up comedy

Students will perform a 3-5 minute Set in a showcase.

PREREQUISITES: No prior experience necessary.

MATERIALS: 

  • Students are encouraged to bring Notecards, a recording device, paper and pen.
  • A Joke Workbook will be provided.

At Flappers University we believe that comedy is truly an art-form, a combination of raw talent and technique. Talent can be lost without technique, so we first teach joke structure and the basic language of comedy. We also believe that what makes a great comedian is being personal and authentic and, perhaps, a rule-breaker, so we provide a safe and fun environment where you can be just that: authentic, inspired and successful. Whether you are already a working comedian or looking to make it your profession, or simply need help with that next presentation or just want to come and have fun, we can help you find the path to funny. 

Refund Policy

There are NO REFUNDS after purchase of a class. Students can request a credit or a roll over to the NEXT SESSION only. After the next session has started, only class credit can be given as a form of reimbursement.

In any event where a customer wants to cancel their enrollment and is eligible for a full refund, a 5% processing fee will be deducted from the refund amount.

    It’s difficult on Zoom and there wasn’t enough explanation by the instructor

    Joanie Coyote was wonderful and insightful. She gave me some of the best and most useful notes I've ever received from a director or teacher. She never put me down and never poked fun of any of us. She's a pro and you can feel it when she talks to you. She empathizes with how vulnerable we are up there and made us all feel like we really could/can do this seemingly impossible task of "getting up and doing 5 minutes". Oh, and she taught me how to write a joke.... And a whole bunch of other stuff you need to know before you step on that stage. I loved the class and I think Ms. Coyote is exceptional.
