I'm having a great time taking the classes. I took the classes to help with fear of public speaking. I signed up for the 5 classes for improv to help with thinking faster on my feet in public but I went on the wrong night for class, it was the stand up class. The instructor Mayday Mayheim is great. By the 3rd class I was already looking for stand-up open Mic gigs and working on my stage name.

What You'll Get

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

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.
