INTRO TO STAND-UP COMEDY: Yep, the Crazies believe that everyone is funny in his/her own way. In our introductory Stand Up Class, students learn to explore their joke and storytelling abilities; they learn to write solid and hard-hitting material; gain skill and technique in delivering their material. Our next 6-week session starts Tuesday and Thursday, January 7 and January 9, 2020; and continues until January 23. The class stages a graduation show before a live audience on a weekend night shortly thereafter.  

STAND UP/ STAND OUT:  During our one-day class on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. we will help you discover your stand up comedy “brand” – in terms of your delivery, your material, and, your style! Standing out takes awareness, creativity, and a thoughtful probe. Join us for this unusual stand up comedy class. Class size is limited to 4-6 students.
