Winter/Spring 2023 Classes:
Stand Up Class, Mondays 6-7pm PST
This class will be led by local performer, writer and long time comedian, Sabrina Pratt and will include input, feedback and workshops from other stand up comedians. This class is a great way to work out your set. You can come in with just an idea and we will work to craft that into a series of jokes. The class will include time to workshop your material, exercises for generating content and ways to get your material ready to perform.
The class structure is positive, supportive and no prior experience is required! Performing your own stand up material in front of a live audience is one of the riskiest AND MOST REWARDING things you can do! The entire class is a 6 week series.
