“Peter Greyy worked hard to make sure that every student had confidence and successful material to approach graduation show. He taught us how to perform jokes, addressed our anxiety, and asked us to trust the process. Everyone did terrific on stage and it was lots of fun doing the show with my fellow classmates.” 

– Wes Warren

“For anyone who has ever wanted – or not wanted – to be on stage, Peter’s class gives you confidence you never knew you had! He’s knowledgable, reliable, and just plain huggable. He finds time to give personal feedback, encouragement and attention, and he’s the best cheerleader anyone can have as you craft an act and hone your comedy writing skills. Honestly I’m going to miss our weekly classes and will sign up for another class as soon as I can.”

– Leah Warshawski

“It is quite a process to go from having a funny thought or idea and transforming it into comedy that can be done as standup. Through Peter’s instruction and direct feedback, I was able to figure out how to get laughs from my funny thoughts or ideas.  I am not a professional comedian, but now at least I feel like one!” – Kyle Riley

I enrolled in this class because I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Rekindle School classes I have attended. Peter Greyy is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of Stand Up Comedy. Although students may feel nervous to stand up in front of a crowd, Peter instills confidence in his students and the results are so rewarding. I can’t wait for the next opportunity to do Stand Up. It is such a great class!!” – George Schnibbe

“I cannot say enough great things about this class. Peter is absolutely fantastic. No matter how many students he has in a given class, he will give every student their fair share of his time. He gives specific and constructive feedback, that helps his students understand the larger concept. He also has such an empathetic and knowledgeable perspective of the world, which helps him predict how bits will be received.

Along that same vein, he will make every single student in his class feel special and capable of creating good material and performing a good set. He makes the class non-intimidating, no matter how frightened a student might be. I would 100% recommend this class to anyone who wants to try stand-up.” – Jenny G.
