Stand-Up Level 1: Finding Your Voice w/ Milly Tamarez (Oct-Dec)


Class limited to 12 students.

Have you always wanted to perform stand-up but don't know where to begin? In this class, we will breakdown how to get started writing a stand-up routine and find your voice as a comedian. Our methods will include how to mine personal stories for material, how to write one-liners and premises, and how to use improvisation to generate ideas instead of staring down a blank page. Classes will also give students the lay-of-the-land on the NY comedy scene - from welcoming weekly open mics to the best shows to see pros in action. Every class will include stage time to try out original material in front of classmates. 6-Week Class: Mondays @ 7:00-10;00 PM, Oct 28 - Dec 9 (no class Nov. 25)

@ Vital Joint (109 Meserole St, Brooklyn)

Class Show: Sat, Dec. 14 @ 8:00 PM @ Vital Joint

Teacher: Milly Tamarez


“Regardless of background, everyone in the class ended up shining, and we all owe that to Milly and the way BCC teaches this subject. Milly truly invested in each individual and guided us towards confidently delivering jokes we wrote on our own while still giving us the knowledge, tools, and resources to keep going on after the class. Also Milly is a rising star so DO NOT miss out on the opportunity to learn from her!"


"The BCC stand-up class with Milly was truly excellent. It was well-structured and Milly is a non-judge mental, nurturing yet just-the-right-amount- of strict teacher and after much hard work, the payoff was huge.”"Master of subject! Milly really has a wealth of knowledge. My favorite thing was how she treated the feedback part of class (after each student's set) like a writer's room in that she would give ideas on how to improve a joke, or perhaps a different way of wording it, or a different place to take it - thus giving the students the nudge to start working their OWN comedy muscle's in similar ways. Milly is able to give the best constructive criticism - she never made anybody feel like their work or their questions were stupid/bad- she'd just give tips on how to improve, or answer the question in a way that didn't make the asker feel silly."
