Stand Up Comedy 101 (STANDUP)

Whether you’re interested in stand up comedy as a career, looking to discover and develop your authentic voice, or just hoping to build comfort and confidence when speaking to a crowd - this is the class for you. This 9-week course taught by a professional NYC comedian and comedy instructor, will help you securely develop your comedy chops in a safe, engaging and supportive environment while allowing you to build confidence in your creative ideas both on and off the stage!
Stand Up Comedy 101 will serve as a laboratory for creating original stand-up material while discovering your truth and voice. You will learn how to translate your ideas into a crafted 5 minute set through proper joke structure, performance skills, writing & editing techniques, all while developing a commitment to your own, unique sense of humor! Students are encouraged to experiment outside their comfort zone and take risks by being specific, vulnerable and having a strong point of view.  
This course is open to all levels & beginners are welcome! Class will culminate in a virtual graduation performance of your 5 minute set for family and friends.
