Standup comedians typically draw from real life, such as bad relationships or how the zoo is crazy. Life's a riot with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $15 for a one-day introductory comedy workshop (a $35 value)
  • $40 for a five-week beginner improv or standup course (a $100 value)

The one-day session splits a two-hour class down the middle—one half focusing on improv and the other on standup. The five-week course focuses on one subject or the other during weekly two-hour sessions that culminate with a live performance. Classes welcome students of all skill levels, ages 16 and older.

McKay Arts

Seasoned stage and screen actor Antoine McKay founded McKay Arts to give fresh faces the courage to step into the limelight and provide established artists with a place to cultivate and hone their craft. Antoine, an alumnus of The Second City's theaters in Detroit and Chicago, trains and manages actors and artists and also provides them with creative outlets in the form of regular performances at the Athenaeum Theatre, Pressure Comedy Café, and other local venues. He instructs students of all ages and skill levels in classes of approximately 12 students or in private coaching sessions, which give patrons ample attention and endless attempts to guess who is knocking at hypothetical doors.
