Advanced Stand Up Comedy Classes Format

Advanced Stand Up Comedy Class #1 – You need not be prepared. Many will have nothing and improvise, some will have partial material, yet my suggestion is to come in with several ideas you might want to do a routine about. All are appropriate. You will spend 7 minutes on stage, then get feedback from Greg and the entire class. 2 gig Flash Drive required to record classes 1-5.

Joke Writing Group – arranged by students during the week.

Advanced Stand Up Comedy Class #2 – Everyone will do a 5 minute show–back to back with no feedback. Then, we will split into two groups and write on each person’s show for 20 to 25 minutes per person. Many people write much of their show during this class. Audio Recorder required for everyone for the writing section.

This are on-going advanced stand up comedy classes. Along with developing material, there are many comedy breakthroughs to work toward. That’s why Greg treats everyone on an individual basis. If you have a particular goal, discuss it with Greg, so he, and the entire class, can offer support in helping you achieve your outcome.

For students who have been with me for a while, you can design your time in class to suit your purposes, like: MC Training, Roasting, Riffing with Audience, Dealing with Hecklers, Extended Characters, Preparing to be an Opener, Improvisational Sets, and so on.
