This stand up class is for teenagers (age 13 - 18) of all comedy levels/experience. At Flappers Comedy University we teach teens how to channel their adolescent awkwardness and awesomeness into original and hilarious stand-up routines. Our goal is to teach kids how to turn their funny ideas, and awkward situations into their OWN comedy material for the stage. The focus is joke structure with an emphasis in building confidence and having fun in a safe, structured environment. This class culminates with a showcase at the club week 7 for friends and family! PLEASE BRING AN AUDIO RECORDING DEVICE TO CLASS, and a notepad and pen or laptop for note-taking.
