Do people tell you that you’re funny all of the time?
Do you want to become a more confident and engaging public speaker?
Have you always wanted to give standup comedy a try?
Not sure where to start?
Then this class is for you.
This is a one-day bootcamp intensive version of our popular six-week Intro To Standup Class.
This one-day bootcamp explains the basics of creating and writing material and jokes, planning and performing standup comedy sets, and finding places to perform anywhere in the world.
You’ll also learn how to deal with hecklers, overcome stage fright, and become more confident in all types of public speaking situations.
This course includes two weeks of filmed practice shows (Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays) at our theater where you can practice your standup comedy set.
This bootcamp class also includes a graduation show (usually on the Saturday two weeks after your bootcamp class date) that your friends, family and co-workers can attend to see how funny and confident you’ve become on stage.
So, whether you’ve always dreamed of having your own Netflix special or just want to become a more confident, kick-ass public speaker this is the class for you.
Get out of the house, meet new people and finally cross “try standup comedy” off of your bucket list.
What Makes Our Standup Course Different:
– We own our theater, so we are able to put on several open mics a week where our students can practice and perform. Since the pandemic performance opportunities (especially for new comics) have been very limited. We guarantee stage time for our students on at least two open mics per week. No other comedy class or school in Southern California can do this.
– We provide free tickets to the comedy shows produced at the theater and by the theater during the duration of the six-week course. This includes tickets to our popular pop-up style shows around Orange County and LA.
– Our open mics and class graduation shows are filmed and students receive a free video copy of each of their performances. More chances to see yourself on video means faster improvement in your performances.
– Instruction on how to manage your social media presence and best online practices for representing yourself and your comedy to others. This includes how to start and produce your own weekly podcast.
