Class Schedules




Class Description
This four-week course will teach you the basics of what you need at stand-up comedy’s “ground zero”. You will learn how to write, edit, and perform the minimum 4-7 minutes of material needed to function at the open-mic level. Everything taught in this class can be learned by getting on stage numerous times and figuring it out for yourself, but we want you to progress faster and learn from our mistakes. You will get one-on-one feedback on material from a working comedian. This class will also focus on basic etiquette, as well as embed good writing and performing habits. Students will perform in a graduation show at the conclusion of the class.


Class Performances
Students will perform after their last class session at the Open Mic (Sunday) at Sacramento Comedy Spot. The instructor will verify the class performance date on the first session of class. Tickets for Open Mic are $5.00. Invite your friends and family!


Other Requirements
No students under 17 years old will be permitted in class without approval.
