"It was insanely useful having a smart, supportive, and (most of all) funny group of people to give me feedback every week. Without them, I'd probably still be at home wishing I tried comedy."

"The experience, quality of workshops and coaching are outstanding. If you ever had the itch to write and perform stand up, just do it. The group dynamic is outstanding also."

"I had an amazing time! It's better than any other class I've ever had because it's essentially a group of class clowns all working together to become funnier. It's a formula that guarantees a good time. If all my teachers were this funny 

and supportive I'd have quit school and started stand up a long time ago!"

"It was the most fun I've had in a long time....The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and packed a ton of useful background information, helpful writing exercises, and direct development of joke structure, material, and finding your attitude and persona as a performer."

This project is partially supported by a CityArts Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events.
