Class #17427: STAND-UP COMEDY
- Learn the basics of stand-up comedy!
- A fun, supportive, hands-on class
- You’ll create original material, explore the business-side of stand-up, and have the opportunity to perform at a comedy club in front of a real audience.
- This is your chance to make a dream come true and get a head start if you choose to pursue comedy further.
- There are three classes in a classroom and then a performance at the Comedy Underground in downtown Seattle.
You hear your name called and you know that it’s your time to shine.
You walk on stage and confidently take the microphone.
There’s an entire room full of people and it is your job to make them laugh with nothing more than the ideas you had in your head and the jokes you wrote.
For some people, this would be a nightmare…but for you, because you’ve learned the skills necessary to succeed when you took the Beginning Stand-Up Comedy Class, this is a dream that you’re making come true.
This is something you’ve always wanted to do…it is something you CAN do…and it will be a lot of fun to learn HOW to do it!
