Have you ever seen a comedian perform and thought, “I can do that!”? Have your friends ever told you that you were hilarious and you should try stand-up comedy? Or do you just love making people laugh and want to give stand-up comedy a try? Our Stand-Up 101 class will give you the skills, practice, feedback, and motivation to perform a five-minute comedy set.

This class and instructional environment encourages constructive feedback, sharing, time-tested lessons and tips, and you’ll have a lot of fun in the process. You will gain the skills you need to perform a five-minute comedy set at an actual open mic, and learn how to continue performing at the Comedy Spot and various venues in the area once you’re done!

For more information on how to get started, read our article, “Become a Comedian: The First Seven Steps“.
