INTRO to STANDUP
Are you the funny person at work? Do your friends tell you that you should be on Comedy Central? Well, prove them right! Intro to StandUp teaches you the basics of stand up comedy and helps you turn your funny lines into a real routine. ImprovBoston instructors are nationally touring comedians who have been featured on MTV, Comedy Central and festivals all over the country.
Intro to StandUp teaches you how to use your own experiences and self-perceptions to develop a routine. Learn how to find your unique comedic voice, how to better observe the world around you, and how to translate your real-life experiences into side-splitting comedy. This class is perfect for anyone who wants to improve their public speaking skills, hone their writing point of view, and better understand how others see you. The class concludes with a StandUp Showcase featuring your own 3-minute routine ready to perform in front of a live audience! Yes, you CAN do this and it's as fun as it looks. We're here with you every step of the way.
Maximum 12 participants per class. $199.00 per person. No previous experience necessary.
Do you want to take your standup comedy to the next level? In our weekly STANDUP WORKOUT classes, you learn from a rotating roster of some of the best local comics. Come to the WORKOUT to further develop your persona and personal comedic style while carefully honing new material. Register as a traditional 8-week class and you'll enjoy all the benefits of a student in our Comedy School (free shows and weekly hands-on instruction) plus save some dollars on your guaranteed spot. 8-week students are also offered a chance to perform in the People's Show at the end of the session. OR, drop in on a class whenever you have new jokes you're looking to workout. Space is limited for drop-ins and offered on a first-come-first-served basis each week. This is the perfect way to get valuable feedback from the experts as you continue to develop your routine in clubs around town. No minimum or maximum number of weeks to drop-in...just show up! Each week features a different top-notch instructor. Think of STANDUP WORKOUT as a yoga studio for your comedy.
Maximum 12 participants per class. $199.00 per person. Per-week Drop-In: $25 per person. Pre-requisite: INTRO to STANDUP or Comedy School permission.
