Description

What you'll learn in this comedy class:

Hone your skills as a stand-up comic in an exciting hands-on workshop designed for both the absolute beginner as well as those already showcasing around town. The class culminates with a graduation show at the Comedy Store, the World Famous Improv Comedy Club or another venue. 

Learn all the techniques the pros use for joke writing, finding your comic personae and POV, and making the best choices for connecting with an audience. We’ll also discuss developing a sitcom and other projects that can bring your comedy to the attention of the entertainment industry at large.
