WHO WE ARE

Courses range from weekly sessions to one-day weekend classes, and one-week classes.

Various classes are still available online via Zoom, as well as one-on-one private coaching sessions.

Over the past 32 years, the Orange County Crazies has become an enviable institution as it remains the longest-running and most prominent organization of its kind in the County of Orange. Based in Santa Ana, California, the O.C. Crazies school and the quality of its classes are unmatched; its student performances crowd-pleasing. Since its inception, it has garnered stellar reviews and a number of awards for its original and creative works, as well as for its unparalleled school of comedy.

The Orange Crazies offers classes in Improv, Stand-up, Sketch Comedy, and workshops for how to develop Original Characters, well as writing classes. It also offers the ‘Lil Crazies workshops and shows for tweens and teens. Courses range from weekly sessions to weekly and one-day, weekend classes. Graduation performances follow each class series.  The organization was founded by Cherie Kerr, a founding member of the famed L.A. Groundlings., who has served as the organization’s Artistic Director since the non-profit comedy organization’s inception. Kerr directs all shows and performances at the De Pietro under the Crazies banner.
