Jerry Corley's Amazing Weekend Comedy Workshops are a great place to start!

In my workshops, I will get you writing in your first hour. You will learn the skill sets that all the top comedy writers use to create material on a daily basis. Some of these tools are exclusive to Jerry's own tool box, which he has used to write up to 120 jokes per day! In this workshop, you learn comedy from the inside out, by learning the science behind what elements actually trigger human laughter then learning the comedy structures to apply to pull those triggers! You will learn:

  • The 12 MAJOR COMEDY STRUCTURES used by all your favorite comedians
  • How to write comedy for stand up, blogs, scripts, books or speeches
  • How to be funny in everyday life
  • 10 Sure-Fire Ways to beat writer's block
  • How to play to any audience
  • How to get work in Stand up comedy or writing
  • How to find your comic persona and write for it.

And much, much more.

You'll be writing jokes in your first hour!

Thanks Jerry for a jam packed weekend full of great tools and execises for creating well structured jokes. Not a single wasted moment. This is the best thing to happen to my comedy career. I've started writing everyday!

Jerry what a great time at your seminar this weekend. Your class was organized and well structured, just like your jokes. I am looking forward to trying the tools you presented to kick start my comedy writing. Thanks again!

One of the biggest challenges I face as a ventriloquist is material. I absolutely love performing, but I have never been good at writing good/funny material. I took the weekend Comedy Writing Clinic with Jerry Corley and it turned my world upside down! We...I was writing jokes in a 10 minute time span! Wow! With the wealth of information we received from Jerry, I feel much more confident in writing new material. Not just any material, but based on the formulas we learned, I am writing solid material! Thank you so much Jerry! You may have just saved my career from landing in the alley of "has been's".

I don't even know where to begin. Jerry in one weekend you have hands down rocked my world. Never thought I could write jokes...or get up and just talk about myself and be confident that I could be funny...now I can't control myself! Every actor should take your weekend course and learn as much as they can about joke writing and stand up. I feel so empowered and have been given so many ideas on how to take charge of my career by using stand up as a means to make money and sharpen my comedic chops. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!

The Stand Up Comedy Clinic

Jerry Corley - Founder of The Stand Up Comedy Clinic

How To Be A Stand Up Comedian Comedy Classes sponsored by The Stand Up Comedy Clinic & How To Write Comedy are high-powered, one-of-a-kind, comedy classes taught over an 8-week period. They are intense. Students learn to become skilled joke writers and craft clever, funny comedy routines.

Students also learn how to brainstorm in a writer's room atmosphere, developing tags and toppers for their routines.

Even though there are a lot of comedy classes out there, there are few people with Jerry Corley's experience and skill to both write and perform comedy and teach it at this level.

You can even start by downloading a FREE COMEDY LESSON
