Stand-Up Comedy Workshop

with Lynn Ruth Miller

Arts & Culture

Learn the basics of what it takes to launch a stand-up comedy career. In this workshop, you will learn the basics of joke-telling, write your first three to five minute set and then perform it before the group in a friendly and accepting atmosphere. 

We will all discuss together ideas on how to sharpen each joke. It is up to you to edit your set after the workshop and polish your craft at open mike's to practice and refine the set you have written. Be sure to come prepared with ideas of what you want to talk about in the set you will write. Pick something that you think is ridiculous or silly. This can be the new emphasis on diets, the crazy routines you do, the way you deal with children or partners, or the things that make you angry: sexism, prejudice; rules and regulations, attitudes….that kind of thing. 

This workshop is meant to be fun. The goal is to make each other laugh.
