Stand-Up Comedy for Beginners Class FAQs:

Will your class make me funny? Great question. No. But seriously, no. :-) This class will, however, focus on the specifics of who you are so you can create a very personalized comedic routine that is all yours. In addition, we will work shop your material and emphasize editing to highlight the funny in an organic way. No worries, many unfunny people have taken this class and succeeded on stage. You will, too!

Will I learn how to write jokes in this class? Another great question. The answer may surprise you - no and yes. This class focuses on you performing a routine that only you could perform, so the writing will be from your perspective, your beliefs, your emotions. We will edit, tweak, and talk about what may or may not make things funny. In this way, the funny or jokes comes from you and your life organically. Life is funny, so you don't have to be.

Is 8 weeks long enough to create and rehearse a routine for a live audience? Yes, it is enough time as long as you are willing to put in extra time outside of class. How much work you put in generally relates to how successful you are on stage. Every single person who has taken this class and put in the necessary time to craft and rehearse their routine has performed a successful stand-up comedy routine. 

What will I learn in this class? We will focus on many things ranging from how to handle a mic to stage presence to writing and editing and rehearsing to how to handle hecklers and what to do if people don't laugh and what to do if people do laugh and, most importantly, how to find your voice and then how to stand-up and deliver!

Will this class prepare me for a career in Stand-Up Comedy? This is an interesting question. It will prepare you for your first stand-up gig and focus on skills and tools that you can use for as long as you perform stand-up. If you've never performed stand-up and don't know where to start or what to do, this class is an excellent path for learning how to organize, prepare, and deliver your comedy.
