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: Tuesdays, 7:00-10:00 PM, Oct. 2- Nov. 6

@ Vital Joint (109 Meserole St, Brooklyn)

Class Show: Wed, Nov. 7 @ 9:30 PM at The Brick Theater (579 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn)

Class limited to 12 students.

Teacher: Milly Tamarez

Testimonials from past students:

"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 - performing our stand up at the Brick Theater."

"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."
