Each student should leave class with a basic concept of how to make painful, strange, or even mundane life experiences funny. The students will learn to dig inside their own lives to find humorous, relatable material, which unifies an audience, making them laugh at their own experiences through the student’s performance. Students will leave class with a strong direction of how to structure a story for comedic purposes. Additional focus will be on getting through the fear of being judged for our honesty.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
