Below are all the comedy classes that we will be offering in April.

EVERYONE IS STUCK AT HOME! Which simply means. Yup. You guessed it. Even famous people are stuck at home. The masters of their craft are bored at home crocheting tiny hats for their cats and trying to tune guitars they have forgotten about for decades. SO- these incredible comedians and writers are going to be our guest instructors!!!

*Please let our awesome director, Sabrina Pratt, know via email at sabrina@centralcoastcomedytheater.com if you have questions!

 “I am totally flying by the seat of my very own improv pants and figuring things out along the way with you & I’m happy to talk it out and clear it right up!” -Sabrina Pratt

Space in these classes is limited! If this is something you’re interested in or know you want please let me know ASAP so I can hold your spot.

I totally get that people are being hit financially right now so no one will be turned away due to a lack of funds! You might not get into a class if the class is already full and these classes are already filling up so email sabrina@centralcoastcomedytheater.com asap to get in!
