Stand-Up 101 (9/5-10/10)
Wednesday, September 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$199.00
This supportive and welcoming class will give aspiring comedians the tools and confidence to begin writing and performing their own original standup material. Each class will give students goal-oriented and practical guidance to experiment and refine their own personal style and voice. Students will then begin to study joke writing through an understanding of basic joke structure, an in-depth study of techniques used by professional comedians, and guided and supported writing sessions. The class will emphasize the importance of practice, experimentation, and risk-taking at open mics. All students will have free entry to the PIT open mics throughout the entire six-week class. The class will culminate and prepare students for a celebratory graduation showcase on main stage.
