BOOMER, ZOOMERS AND SENIORS STAND UP COMEDY

Standup comedy is considered one of the most difficult performance art forms. Yet getting a laugh can be the most exhilarating of feelings. You’ll participate in this course by telling parts of your life story and adding the punchlines in the right places. You’ll learn to be your authentic self and to get smiles and downright belly laughs. And don’t worry; you get to pick the parts of your life story you want to share.

We will discuss comedy’s role in our lives and how nearly every subject can be developed into a comedy bit. We’ll work collaboratively to generate jokes and develop your performance style. A showcase of our comedy will be featured in the final class.

Please note that enrollment in this course is reserved for adults 55+.
