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.

Our six-week Intro To Standup Class will teach you everything you need to know to perform standup comedy.

This class 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.

The class includes multiple weekly on-stage practice shows at our theater, videos sent to you of all of your performances and a graduation show.

You’ll also learn how to deal with hecklers, overcome stage fright, and become more confident in all types of public speaking situations.

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.

Class includes a graduation show where you and your classmates will perform for family and friends.

We also offer a one-day bootcamp version of this course that takes place on Saturday November 19th.

What Makes Our Standup Course Different:

– We own our theater with two separate stages. So, we are able to put on several private student 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 to four shows 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.

– Scheduled one-on-one time with instructors to go over specific issues, challenges and goals within standup comedy.

– 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.
