Stand-Up 1: Joke Writing (Online)

Develop yourself as a solo comedic performer by writing and workshopping your own material. By understanding how earlier stand-up comics evolved, students experiment outside their comfort zone and experiment in a variety of styles until discovering their own unique style. Students will be encouraged to perform in local open mics when possible, and upload performance videos to YouTube or Vimeo. They will also be required to provide both supportive and constructive feedback for their fellow students.

Each week will require 2-3 hours of time to read up on assignments, respond to classmates, and create material. Though it is strongly encouraged that you attend open mics, you can record your set at home.
