4 Week Class – Max. Class Size: 5
This four-week course will teach you the basics of what you need at stand-up comedy’s “ground zero” by teaching 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.
Important Note: This class meets at the Comedy Spot Lab located at 1812 J Street, Suite 9, Sacramento, CA 95811. Also, if the class has more than 5 students the class will run longer than one hour up to 90 minutes.
Classes meet for 4 consecutive weeks unless otherwise noted. Fees for classes are non-refundable.
