Stand-Up Comedy

For ages 18 & older only

Improvisation provides an excellent background to stand-up comedy and vice-versa. It is not as different as one might think. The role of this workshop is to increase the improviser’s confidence in their own unique artistic voice and try something that is new and exciting in a safe classroom environment. Your improv skills will only improv from a stab at stand-up and your mind and creativity will be stimulated. And that, is always a cool thing.


The One-Night Stand-Up Intensive – NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

This workshop is perfect for the student that has rarely or never done any stand up comedy at all. No pre-written material is necessary. This is a time to discover and strengthen your unique comedy voice and learn new comedy skills. If any of this terrifies and excites you, then this is the class for you. This is a safe, constructive environment and bottom line, is a lot of fun!

This class is limited to 15 students.


The 6-Week Stand-Up Development

This is the first step to really developing the writing that will fit your individual voice. There is no rubber stamped style and everyone is unique. Learn techniques to kick start the writing process and avoid many common pitfalls of stand up writing and delivery. The goal of this class is to develop a 5 to 10 minute stand up set that is polished and ready to hit the stages of Austin and beyond.

This is a six-session class with a student showcase.

This class is limited to 10 students.
