Course Description

Standup comedy is a solo performance with just a microphone and usually without accessories or music. Every night of the week there are standup comedy shows in our area which welcome comedians of any ability or experience to an "open-mike" to share their material on stage. In this 2 hour overview, learn how and where to launch your hobby or even your career as a standup comedian. Hear tips on writing jokes, how to effectively practice and hone your routine, and gain insight on specific venues that best match your style and goals. Note that we will not cover other forms of comedy such as improvisational or sketch; this will only be for standup. Your instructor has performed throughout the DC area for all types of audience.
