A little about the class:

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!

A little about my teaching style:

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!  

Come join us!

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!
