In this 6 part series, learn everything you need in order to get up on any stage and perform stand-up comedy. In case you didn't know, the "tight 5" is what every comedian struggles with. Whether they are a seasoned professional or just getting started, your best 5 minutes are what you work on the most.
Once you master your 5 minutes, you can re-visit the class as many times as you like for as long as you like to refresh yourself and help you develop new ideas and material. Unlike many classes that claim to be "free", there are no additional classes that you need to take. If you watch the tutorials and do the work, you will be on stage confidently performing stand up comedy.
We may eventually create other comedy based classes and we may develop more specialized classes that dive even deeper on any particular subject we address here, but there is nothing else you need to buy to become a successful comedian after this one. This is not a tease course. This gives you what you need.
MISSION: Have a funny stand up comedy set that you can be proud of while feeling confident you can build on it.
What you get in this series:
Stand Up Comedy is extremely difficult to get started on your own. You can read in most forums that a stand up comedian isn't going to do well in their first year. What they won't tell you is that if you get some help and structure you can be up on stage today. You can get laughs today.
Sometimes you don't know where to go or how to get stage time, but you'll learn how. You'll learn how to build relationships, you'll know who to talk to and most importantly, you'll learn how to find yourself on stage when you start to get good.
The truth is that Stand Up Comedy, joke writing, structure and delivery are not that difficult as long as someone is showing you how to do it. It's like riding a bike, hitting a baseball or learning a new language. Why is it that people hire coaches for sports, but not for writing? Why are we so quick to read books on health and diet and think that we can take on an artistic skill without any help?
This course takes 20 years of experience and neatly tucks it into six all inclusive sections for you to chew on. It's all right there. And if it's not everything you wanted it to be, it's refundable. We don't want to hold your money hostage if you don't think you see the value.
EXPECTATIONS: Expect for the class to take you 6 weeks to work through. It's designed to mirror the live class Sick Puppies Comedy offers at their theater in Boca Raton. If you wish to join a live Sick Puppies Comedy Class and you happen to live near Boca Raton, FL, visit www.sickpuppiescomedy.com for more information.
We also offer options that allow you to be coached one on one virtually so that you can have some accountability and a sounding board as you try to apply some of these techniques.
