STAND-UP CLASSES IN PHILLY
Our stand-up classes are designed for complete beginners or those with relatively little experience writing and telling their own jokes in front of a crowd. It’s a great place to start because it will help you get more comfortable before heading out to the various open mics around the city. If you’ve got more experience and less time, our occasional workshops meet for one afternoon and study specific skills or approaches to stand-up that may be helpful to you.

Intermediate Students
Students will build on the “tight five” they created in Stand-Up 101, developing new material so they finish class with 10 minutes of stage ready jokes. They will also learn the basics of serving as host for a stand-up show.
