Stand-up Comedy Workshop with Second City and Show with Ian Bagg

If you are a comedy lover, this workshop is for you! Second City's Training Center will lead us in some group and solo exercises to help get us writing while teaching us inside tips on how to perform a good set. Led by the Head of the Stand-up program, Bryan Bowden.

After the workshop, we will head down to Up Comedy Club and see one of my favorite live performers, Ian Bagg at 10:30pm. This guy plays a room like few others. There will be a full bar, great food and a great section held for our group.

Buy a ticket to Ian's 10:30pm show the night of or at the link below and meet our group in the 4th floor lobby around 7:45. The workshop will start right at 8pm.

About Ian Bagg:

Who is Ian Bagg and what has he done? Ian was born in a little town of Terrace B.C. Canada. In the year that the Vancouver Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in the Stanly Cup Playoffs, a year better known as 1994, he began doing stand up comedy. After moving to New York City, he quickly became a regular at all the major comedy clubs. After a short three years in New York, Ian had made three appearances on NBC’s “The Conan O’Brien Show”, rocked HBO’s “Aspen Comedy Festival”, and destroyed “Just For Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival”.

As predicted, Los Angeles came calling. Soon after moving, he had made appearances in independent movies and sitcoms. He has worked as a correspondent for MySpace, hosted Ripe TV’s “The Hollywood Burn” and even had his own live talk show “The Ian Bagg Show”. He’s added credits like NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, CBS’s “Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn” and CBS’s “The Craig Ferguson Show”. He was able to be apart of a half hour comedy special, “A Comic’s Climb” from HBO and “Comedy Central Presents Ian Bagg” (leading him to dating Britney Spears for three days). In love with the art of stand up, he was thrilled when The History Channel asked him to be a part of their special, “The History of the Joke”.

Ian has done shows in China, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, and all over North America, keeping his frequent flier points high and his knowledge of the world sharp. Al Gore described his comedy as “controlled chaos”, President Reagan on his death bed described it as an “interactive delight”. Nancy agreed. Do not miss your chance to see Ian.
