Discover the Best Comedy Classes Online

Comedic works are pieces of fiction that can take the form of discourse, jokes, or satirical sketches that are intended to be humorous and make an audience laugh. Comedies can appear in many different forms, including theater, film, television, stand-up, radio, books, or nearly any other entertainment medium. If you want to trace the origins of comedy, you can go all the way back to the Greeks and Romans. They developed the word “comedy” to describe stage-plays that had happy endings. Any type of work that is intended to bring amusement is considered comedic, and anyone can learn the skill of comedy.

Why You Should Learn Comedy Online

Taking an online comedy class could be a good way to relieve the stress of everyday life, while also giving you something new to do during your free time. This is a skill that will give you a creative outlet that takes your whole body to master, and once you understand comedy you can even use it to create a gift for others. Not only is it a way to entertain people, but you could potentially write an entire comedic act for someone you care about as a way to give back to them.

You may not realize it yet, but there is a comedy community out there made up of professionals and amateurs. Once you understand the basics of comedy, it may be a good idea to research local clubs, groups, events, or organizations where you can meet others who are interested in comedy. Just keep in mind that most individuals who are in these groups already have some experience with comedy, and they may not be looking to teach a beginner. Generally speaking, a group will state explicitly that beginners are welcome before you join.

And do not forget that learning comedy could potentially be a skill to add to your resume. A sense of humor is something you need to have at just about any job, and learning comedic timing may be helpful when you need to lighten things up. If you wanted to, you could even start a comedy focused YouTube channel or TikTok account and begin producing your own sketches and routines. Growing your following on these platforms would allow you to make money and turn your hobby into a side hustle.

Virtual Comedy Classes 

Taking an online comedy class can be a good way to learn comedy skills, especially if you do not live in an area where in-person comedy classes are offered. There are a few advantages of online comedy classes, including that they allow you to attend from just about anywhere, including your home or backyard. You do not have to commute to and from an online comedy class, which saves you time and money in the long run. Beware that if you take an online comedy class you will most likely have to provide any required materials or equipment. Luckily most comedy classes do not require much beyond your attendance.

If you are interested in taking online comedy classes, CourseHorse can help you find the perfect fit. For example, 2-Week Comedy & Drama Intensive with Jeremy Gordon is a class that will teach you scene study and audition techniques revolving around the comedic genre. You will be learning from an experienced casting director in an interactive environment that includes a Q&A session. 

The Comedy Intensive Online is a four-session course designed for all levels of experience. You will experience an interactive workshop environment that explains comedy and comedy writing from the inside out. You will learn best practices for comedy that will allow you to further broaden your horizons in the genre. 

Virtual Stand Up Comedy is a four-session online class that will help you develop a five minute stand up comedy routine in a supportive environment. You will learn how to develop original material, as well as visible digital content to support your stand up set.

Stand-Up Comedy Workshop with Graduation Show is a seven-session class that will help you hone your skills as a stand up comic in an exciting hands-on workshop. This course is designed for all levels and culminates with a graduation show after you learn all the techniques the professionals use for joke writing.

Stand Up Online Comedy Class (All Levels) is aimed at those who would like to gain a basic understanding of comedy structure, as well as veteran performers who want to gain a broader understanding of their art. In this course you will learn basic joke structure, as well as how to be more confident and deliberate in your onstage delivery.

Private Online Group Comedy Classes

Wondering if you can schedule a comedy class for your coworkers or a group of friends? CourseHorse has comedy classes for private groups that they can deliver to you. This Virtual Comedy Show is a group comedy experience that everyone can enjoy, with a capacity of up to 50 people. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some belly laughs with your group as you take in stand up jokes from a top-notch comedian. This event pairs well with a virtual happy hour or one of CourseHorse’s virtual games for a dynamic and fun experience. Virtual Public Speaking Through Stand-Up is great for a group of up to 30 people, and is a team building class taught by a professional comedian. This one-session intensive course will teach stand up comedy to your team as a way to enhance aspects of their professional lives and collaboration skills.

And you do not need to worry if you do not see a class listed publicly that interests you, because CourseHorse can provide a group comedy class even if it is not currently listed on their website. Simply reach out through the contact form on their website to learn about available options. And remember that when you book with CourseHorse, you can change your group size after booking if needed, you will receive a confirmation within 24 hours, and there are no booking fees. Plus, CourseHorse supports multiple platforms, so everyone can join the fun no matter where they are.

Online vs. In-Person Comedy Classes

Taking an online comedy class is a great way to decide if it is something you want to pursue, especially if there are no in-person classes near you. The biggest difference between taking an online and in-person comedy class is that you are not in the room with other performers. That being said, you will still get real-time feedback from your instructor about your performance, and the writing aspect of the class will be much the same regardless of if it is in-person or online. Remember that if any materials are required, you will most likely have to purchase them yourself if you take an online course, but your instructor should give you a list of what you need to buy.

Can I Learn Comedy for Free Online?

Yes, you can get started learning comedy through online tutorials and videos, such as ones found on YouTube. But if comedy is something that you would like to continue learning, the best way to do it is with formal training from an expert. Feedback and advice from a qualified instructor helps most people learn comedy faster and better, and will most likely result in more confident performance and delivery.
