Stand-Up: Finding Your Voice

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, and students are encouraged to attend the weekly free open mic starting right after class at Vital Joint (same location) to try out material for the public.
