Event description

Description

About the Class: Have you ever thought about trying stand-up comedy? Or do you want to take your stand-up and comedy writing to the next level? This workshop will help you find your inner comedic voice, whittle down to find the funny, or punch-up what already is. This is a four part series that covers the writing, performance, and business aspects of comedy. Each class is an hour and a half, and students should bring a pen and paper to each session. You can choose to attend either part or all of this course, so please be sure to review the ticketing options below.

About the Facilitator: Josh Filipowski has produced and performed in countless stand-up comedy shows nationally and internationally, produced projects for NBC, and contributed to The Howard Stern Show on SiriusXM & The Complete Idiot's Guide to Jokes (Alpha/Penguin). He founded Like 2 Laugh Productions in New York in 2003 and has helped comedians develop in New York, Los Angeles, Lexington, Costa Rica, Italy and beyond. Besides the stage, he has hosted radio and live-stream programs as well as appeared on ABC's Noon Show, NBC's Today in LA and NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Dates/Tickets: This course is broken up into four sessions spread across two weeks. The first week will have two classes (on Tuesday, 1/23 and Thursday, 1/25) dedicated to comedy writing and theory, and the second week will have two classes (on Tuesday, 1/30 and Thursday, 2/1) dedicated to the performance and business side of comedy. Each session can be taken as an individual workshop, or the whole course can be taken as a full introduction to stand-up comedy. Before purchasing your tickets, please review the options below to determine what experience is best for you.

Single Session-$30

This option only signs you up for one of the four dates. If you are just interested in just getting a taste of what comedy is like, or you are only able to attend a single class, this is the best option to pick. (Please select the specific date you would like to attend when checking out).

2 Sessions-$50

This option signs you up for two sessions of the course. If you are only interested in attending the first week of Theory/Writing classes, or the second week of Performance/Business classes, or if your schedule only permits you to attend one class per week, this is the best option to pick. (No matter what date you select when checking out, a member of our staff will email you to confirm which dates you would like to attend).

Full Course-$90

This option signs you up for all four classes and offers the best value. (No matter what date you select during checkout you will be registered for all four classes)
