Important: This is not a beginning level class. If you’re looking for a beginning intro to stand-up comedy, take Taylor’s Stand Up Comedy 101 class first. 

To qualify for this class you need to have already taken a stand-up comedy class and/or have experience doing stand-up regularly for several months. Basically you need to already have experience as this class will not be teaching joke structure, stage etiquette, or the basics or writing stand-up comedy.


Stand-Up Comedy 201 is an intensive four week course for any comic who wants to progress their stand-up. With a focus on comedic individuality every graduate will get a personalized course based on their own unique goals. 

Whether you just want to understand comedy a little better, find your original comedic voice, or scale your career to new heights, this class is for you. 

This class will help you further understand: 

  • How to get more laughs and bigger reactions from an audience. 
  • How to open-mic productively
  • How to produce a good tape
  • How to submit for opportunities like festivals, club spots, etc.
  • How to build your online presence

Each student is working on their tight 5-7 minute set and will perform it at the grad show on week 4. 

This is more like joining a comedy team than it is like taking a a comedy class. Everyone works together and class feedback is heavily encourraged. Every class starts with Q & A and the first two classes everyone will perform material, break-it down, give feedback, and repeat. The third class is a dress rehearsal and the fourth class is the graduation show. 

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.

Before graduation each student will have the option to engage in a one-on-one meeting with the instructor to break down their set and help refine it for the big show. 

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.
