Share your story

Stand-Up and Storytelling classes focus on individual comedic performance based off your personal experiences and observations. Though your final showcase is performed as a solo act, throughout the class you work as a team: listening, laughing, and providing feedback to one another to create the strongest show possible.

There is no pre-requisite or experience required for Stand-up Level 1 or Storytelling Level 1.

All students enrolled receive a student ID which allows them to see shows for free.
