Advanced Training

Prerequisite: Comedy 101 Class

In our safe and supportive environment, you’ll learn Greg’s advanced joke writing techniques and performing skills. 

You see, it’s not enough to write a great joke, you have to know how to connect with that audience and perform to them and for them.

By the time you’ve completed both courses, you’ll be able to competently put together a routine and expertly write jokes and perform like a real pro.

Each course is conducted by Greg Dean and his certified instructors. His students call him “amazing” … “motivating” … “a great teacher.”

Greg invented and perfected the joke writing and performing techniques that have prepared over 40,000 people for a career in comedy – and have given countless others more confidence and poise in their work and personal lives. His classes are taught in the US and internationally.
