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. $225.00 per person. No previous experience necessary.
