CHILDREN’S ‘Lil Crazies’ Workshops:
The OC Crazies not only offers comedy programs to adults. We also provide training to youngsters and teens. We offer both workshops in a 7-week series, one-week bootcamps, and one-day workshops throughout the year. Children must audition for the classes or have been a prior Crazies student in the past.
