You will get up twice each class, developing material you feel excited about. It will be authentic and new and totally you. We do this together, in a small class environment, giving and getting useful feedback, striving and laughing. We end with a great show, each comic doing 7 minutes. Then you head off to those open mics and shows informed and confident, even hopeful. This is my goal for each student and I will do my very best to get you there!
In our 4 hours together, we will cover:
Handling the mic and stand
How to write for standup
How to "write on stage"
How to find open mics
Open mic etiquette
How to re-write after getting up
You will get up to the mic twice in this workshop
How can I help you?
Stand Up, Storytelling, Public Speaking, you name it!
Private sessions meet in Studio City
If you're interested in studying with me and would like to see more, come to one of our shows. Each Level 1 session ends with a show. They're free and the shows are a guaranteed good time!
If you come, please say "HI", I'd love to meet you and answer any questions you have.
See you soon!
Besides my classes in Atwater, I am a faculty member at USC, teaching three stand up classes in the School of Dramatic Arts and various engineering and business classes. I try my best to continue to grow as a teacher and a comic. I do not teach formulas, exactly. I prefer to ask questions, give prompts, get you up over and over so you can discover and tell me what kind of comic you are, not the other way around. I want to help you be you, to tell the truth, to make a connection. I want to help you create something new.
This is my joy, I've worked with almost 900 students now and it's fun, every single time!
My classes are located in darling Atwater Village, nestled between Glendale, Los Feliz and Silverlake, close to coffee shops and independent eateries. Plenty of metered and street parking available!
