Today's side deal converts your good humor into laughs, which are then converted to DVD: for $199, you get a four-week stand-up-comedy workshop ($300) and an edited DVD of your debut performance ($100) from Page to the Stage (a $400 total value), which is inside the Los Angeles School of Comedy. This package includes four classes, held every Thursday at 7:30 p.m., where you'll develop material and a stage persona.
In addition to the four group classes, you'll receive one private, one-on-one personal coaching to help refine cadence and intonation, as well as access to lectures by drop-in special guests. After successfully completing the four classes, each graduating funny person will perform at one of Hollywood's local (and world-famous) comedy clubs, adding a backdrop of authenticity and awesomeness to each routine. Performances are filmed, edited down, and then willed onto a DVD, which is easy to copy, hand out, or use as a promotional Frisbee. After mastering the finer arts of stand-up, newfound class clowns will be able to convert any life experience into a laugh-a-minute explosion, such as eating a bowl of cereal hilariously.
