STAND UP 101A:

In this class, you’ll learn the basic structure of a short joke, how it works, and how you can write your own. Next, you’ll learn how that very same structure is applied to long-form jokes and comedic storytelling. This class is a good blend of the theoretical (how to write for stand-up), and the practical (how to perform it). Join Alex Jocko, local comedian and show producer, as we dive into joke writing and experimentation.
