Standup Comedy Intensive Course! Back by popular demand  

Hi Comedy Junkies,

Want to be a comedian? or just want to feel the rush of being on stage, I'll be back in SD to conduct this standup comedy crash course, Sunday 2/26. Spend one day with a real working comedian to prep you for the world of standup comedy in this intensive course. After this course, I will set you up with local shows and promoters (only if you are serious about it). I am very happy and proud to say that a few of my past attendees have gone on to do some great shows with me. here are links to some clips. 

Jeffrey Hansen at the Mad House 

Pamela Ruth at the Comedy Palace

This class is a one day intensive, it will be 3-4 hours. The cost of this intensive is $50, not the $300+ that other places will charge you to learn with a non-comedian. I am going to keep class size small so everyone can get a chance to go on stage and ask questions (no more than 15 people). 

This class will be held in a real venue with a stage so we can practice specific techniques. Everyone will get a chance to try a few minutes (if you want to) and get feedbacks. 

This course will cover: 

- Basic techniques, different types of punchlines

- Structure of standup (joke writing, act out, improv, etc)

- Crowd Work

- Types of comedy shows

- How to get booked

- How to promote yourself 

- On/off stage do's and don'ts

REAL ON STAGE EXERCISE (only if you want to)

- Q&A
