Classes
Our classes are designed to boost your confidence and improve your communication skills, which is important in any job or social situation.The workshops are tailored to meet the needs of each individual. Although some of our students have prior stage experience, most of our students have never stepped foot on a stage.
 
Not only are the classes informative, they are filled with laughter in a non-stressful, supportive environment. These workshops are designed to leave you feeling energized and rejuvenated. The ADULT workshops are Concentrated Weekend Classes and cost $225. At the end of the course you will perform live on stage. Please see below for more information and for dates of the ADULT COMEDY BOOT CAMP.
 
What our students say:
 
Four years ago this month, I started that class with you. Today, I got booked for a well paying (I threw out a number on a lark, and they took it!) corporate gig, and also a college gig came through today for the same price. Astronomical pricing in my world, for an hour show, I don't have! But I will very soon ;) Thanks for everything you've done for me and the rest of us comedy addicts.
