Looking for a comedy class in Seattle? Our Stand-Up Comedy class is a great place to start. NOTE: This class meets in a venue where alcohol is sold, so enrollment is limited to students 21 and older.

This fun intensive standup comedy workshop is designed for anyone who has ever wanted to try, or learn about stand up comedy.

Over the course of four weeks you will learn about the craft of standup comedy through practice and experimentation. Each student works towards the goals they set for class and are coached toward them individually.

In less than a month everyone will build a 3-5 minute set and at the end of the course you will have the opportunity to perform that set in front of a live audience, at a real comedy club.

Each class involves exercises and workshops designed to give students a crash course in performing so you can walk away from graduation with more tools and know-how than your average three year comic.

Throughout the course there will also be culturally and comedically diverse guest comics in order to have expert voices outside of Taylor’s available for questions and feedback.

Students will also receive free tickets to multiple shows during the month of class, and are encouraged to participate in as many open mics as possible, as well as attend as many live shows as they can. 

About the Instructor

Taylor Clark is a touring headliner and the new Talent Coordinator for the Seattle International Comedy Contest (S.I.C.C.) With a decade of New York comedy experience under his belt and a background in coaching gymnastics, Taylor’s approach to teaching comedy is both direct and nurturing. In New York, he not only performed regularly alongside many of today’s biggest comedy stars, he also booked and produced comedy shows throughout the city. This garnered him much wisdom in regards to working professionally with both comics, venues, and the public.

 In 2017, Taylor relocated to the Northwest, was a finalist in SICC, and immediately began working full time as a comic in the northwest. In 2019, he was accepted into the famous Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and at the end of that year he recorded his debut album “Addictive Tickle”. Several clips from his album went viral on instagram and within weeks of it’s release Taylor was being interviewed by the biggest Skateboard Magazines on earth including Thrasher and Low Card magazine.

He was credited as being the first comic ever to have “Funny” jokes about being a skater. Social Media and marketing guru Gary Vaneychuck ‘s ONE37Pm platform interviewed Taylor about being able to find a niche and market himself effectively. Since then, Taylor has been headlining comedy clubs, indie venues and even skate-shops all over the country. He also opens for acts like Mark Normand, Joe List, Tammy Pescatelli and more.

With his unique career, and ability to use social media to build success, Taylor offers a truly unique and current perspective on pursuing stand up comedy in today’s evolved landscape. He has a wife, a son, a dog, and is living a nice domesticated life in Everett WA.
