What You'll Get
Without laughter, playgrounds would be silent except for the creaking of old swing sets and the trickling of tears into belowground aquifers. Celebrate the sound of mirth with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a four-hour Introduction to Stand-Up Comedy Workshop at Greg Dean's Comedy Workshop in Ontario (a $75 value). This Groupon is valid for the following classes:
- Saturday, September 10th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Saturday, September 10th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday, September 24th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
- Saturday, September 24th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Greg Dean, author of Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy and an instructor since 1982, mentors groups of hopeful humorists as they glean tips on effectively busting guts in four-hour workshops. During the Introduction to Stand-Up Comedy course, which accommodates up to 25 people, participants learn the basic architecture of jokes—from setup to punch line—and how to write funny premises. Greg also guides beginners to overcoming stage fright and developing their own comedic voices, instead of mimicking the styles of famous comedians like Jerry Seinfeld or Ellen DeGeneres. Apprentices will discover ways to riff and interact effortlessly with audiences, which can improve overall public speaking skills for doctors, members of the clergy, and lawyers.
