Couch to Mic is a performance-based comedy workshop experience. Participants will spend four weeks writing and rehearsing their own original 5-ish minutes of comedy material.

Stephanie Lazenby will coach and guide the group in a supportive and fun environment. Each person will discover their own, unique comedy voice.

All of this leads to week five - which is a live performance in front of an audience at 3S Artspace. Stephanie will host the night for all to have a great time!

Couch to Mic is an empowering experience. Participants take moments from their life and transform these stories into a live comedy experience.

Get off the couch and take your ideas from the page to the comedy stage!

Please note:

- Workshop is four weeks - each workshop session is two hours.

- All workshop participants are required to perform at the live show on week five.

- At each workshop session, participants will share their progress with the class.

- All levels: This workshop series of Couch to Mic is open to those who are new to the Couch to Mic, as well as return participants! Due to the high demand for this workshop, if you are a proud Couch to Mic alum, please wait two sessions before registering for another session. We want to share the love AND have you back!

- Couch to Mic is a workshop where everyone supports each other to create an unforgettable night of entertainment.
