Comedy Workshop! Are YOU Funny?!!

It's time for me to get back to my roots! I've always been a teacher and I even have a degree in education (maybe you didn't know that about me)! It has been a while since I've taught a class and I have really missed it. This July, I'm starting a stand-up comedy class, here in L.A. and if you've ever wanted to give comedy a shot, I hope you sign up and join me! Here's the info:


Stand Up Comedy Workshop:



Are you funny? Have your friends and family always told you that you should be a comedian? Are you interested in trying stand up, but just aren’t sure how to start? Or maybe you’re just looking for a creative outlet in your life.


Whether you are a comedy virgin or an experienced speaker, this Six Week Stand-Up Class will show you how to take the stage with confidence and make people laugh. You will develop your unique performer’s voice and gain practical, first-hand knowledge from a working professional with teaching skills, not just someone whose career is teaching.


Amy takes a “workshop” style approach to her classes where each student will rehearse, participate, receive individual attention and learn from each other. It is a supportive and fun environment and each six week session ends with a showcase at a comedy club. Classes are also ongoing, so after your initial six weeks, you can continue on to the next session, further developing your act and performing in future showcases.


Whether you’re a comedian, actor, writer, host, public speaker or just want to try something new, this class has something for you!


During the class you will learn how to:

* Choose premises that showcase your unique personality

* Construct and develop a joke

* Avoid common mistakes made by most newcomers

* Build a starter set that will serve as the foundation for more material or add to and enhance existing material



Beginning Wednesday, July 1, 2008 - $295, 7:00pm (Every Wed, July 1 – August 5)
