This class is for comics wanting more development for your stand-up comedy, one person shows, comedy contests and festivals, or speaking business. You will be going beyond the standard comedy writing formulas to try new directions in your comedy. You will be working on riffing, crowd work, short format story building, call backs and topical jokes. You will be working toward an 8-10 minute set, without using notes.
The classes are demanding and require an incoming assignment due before the first class.
You will be doing a filmed open mic night of riffing and crowd work.
Sessions will include “how to get a paid feature spot with a show runner”, how to book a guest spot, when should you get paid. Where to go to work on your comedy.
