Introduction to Stand-up Comedy
4 Week Class – $120 – Max Class Size: 5
You will learn what you need at stand-up comedy’s “ground zero” by teaching how to write, edit and perform 4-7 minutes of material at the open mic level.
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 that’s needed to function at the open mic level. Everything you learn 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.
What do I do after the class?
Get on stage! At as many venues as possible! Sacramento has an incredible comedy scene- get involved. See the resources section below for information on open mics and showcases. We also have a lot of shows at the Comedy Spot. We have Open Mic Scramble every Sunday and Monday, a monthly New Comic Showcase, and a weekly stand-up show called, wait for it… The Stand-up Show and we are always looking for more talent.
Give our students a place learn and thrive in a supportive environment and comfortable environment.
Graduation shows are on Sundays during Open Mic Scramble. Your class will choose a date to perform after the second week of class so that students can plan ahead, invite friends and family, and to ensure the maximum amount of students can participate.
Fees for classes are non-refundable.
No students under 17 years old will be permitted in class with out approval.
