Stand Up Comedy for Beginner and Intermediate Comics 

In this stand-up comedy class, you will find and express your voice, turning it into lethal words that kill - an audience. This class will also be very helpful if you want to improve your confidence and public speaking skills in a fun environment!

This class is designed for both beginner and intermediate comics. In this class, you will learn how to transform your anger, fears and life experiences into standup comedy material. You will also learn performance techniques to boost your confidence and delivery on stage, and develop a network of fellow comedians who support one another. In addition to getting a refresher on the basics, more experienced comedians will also be given individualized feedback on their material to take their act to the next level.
