Two Milk Minimum Testimonial

“I received your feedback form yesterday and want to take advantage of the opportunity to let you know what a great time we had Saturday.  Ian’s birthday was fabulous, thanks to Flappers!  I don’t know how to fill out the form on-line but I would give every item a ten.  Kids loved the show…all three performers were outstanding.   Michael put together a great Starwars video piece that was perfect for keeping the boys entertained before the show.  The woman comedian (I can’t remember names) was wonderful………and after the show she came to say hi and presented Ian with a wonderful birthday present actually created herself at home before the show!  The kids loved the magician too and he was also great about making a big deal out of the birthday.   The music and sound effects throughout the show also added fun energy!  Our waitress was very sweet, organized, and efficient as well!  We would for sure do another event.  It was a perfect setting for my 12 year old son and his friends…..not at all babyish!  We bought Michael’s video and my kids rushed home to watch it the same night!  Thanks so much for everything!!!!”

KIDS & TEENS COMEDY CLASSES

Hi Dave,

Ryan was a HIT! It's offical, he is now famous at Chaminade Middle School! LOL

We sent an email to my cousin Al after we left Flappers and he wrote back with some great advice for Ryan while he's on stage. Just like you, he said it was all about having fun and talk to the crowd as if they were a group of his friends.

Thank you again for your help- he loved every minute of it and is really looking forward to the upcoming classes in Feb.

Warm regards

Mimi & Ryan Town

our video camera died in the middle of his routine, so we only have a audio version

KIDS IMPROV CLASSES- INSTRUCTOR CHRISTINE BARGER

This is Caleb and Adora's mom. The kids were full of confidence and joy on showcase day.  The open mike was  fun and ground breaking for  both and especially for Adora, she finally chose to push through to the end. The kids have learned a lot  from you. They were playing improv games with family last week, It was fun to see their confidence in that area.

Thank you Again Christine,  Love Lisa Jonathan Caleb and Adora Jackson.

"I love taking classes at Flappers! Professional, fun and good, constructive feedback."

"Hey Shannon!  Just wanted to say thank you for teaching a wonderful class. I learned so much and working with the other guys in the class was very helpful, but you were so patient with us all and were such a great teacher. The show wouldn't have gone so well if it wasn't for your genius and experience. NO LIE.  Thanks and hope to see you soon. Hope to also take the second class the next go around if possible."

Thanks Barbara, I'll fill in the feedback form and drop it in this week when I pass by Burbank. You did a terrific job yesterday, what I loved was you weren't patronizing at all as you shared your knowledge and obviously have a love of comedians - it's always a great collection of humanity from all different backgrounds in the comedy world. You were on your feet talking for the best part of 6 hours!! That is extraordinary. This was  a really good class. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Best, David

"Shannon was great! After watching other sets in other clubs it became apparent to me how much I learned in the class and how happy I am that Shannon coached me. I'll see you guys later this year."

The class with Joanie was excellent in every way.
She was VERY generous with her time and knowledge, and fun and kind and supportive.

To answer your survey questions: the classes were excellent as I had hoped they would be and the entire Flappers experience was an excellent one.
 
It was good to have the Comedy Bible as added reading; I had never had to write my own material (lost would be an understatement) so the book helped reinforce and expand a bit on what Joanie talked about. I would make it strongly recommended reading for new students.

Just to repeat, I did go to the evening show Fri. July 13 and I was very impressed with the venue from a customer side. The main room is a great size and set up and design. I loved the movies and clips that are shown on the screen. The performers were excellent and I could hear everything clearly and the wait staff and front of house staff polite and attentive to me.

Thank you to you and Joanie for making the Sunday July 15 showcase such a great event.

Sincerely, Dace

I had never heard of Gabe Abelson until his Writing for Late Night TV class but I was impressed with his resume. I took his class and it was one of the most fun I have had. He teaches you how to write monologue jokes, how to write a late night packet, and tells you stories about his time writing for leno, letterman, tom green, etc.... 

He has read my late night packet even after his class was over (about 2 months over) and gave me great notes (like he was still my teacher).

Dropping a note to say Sara's class was excellent and helpful! This was the first ever improv class I've taken and it was challenging but I was able to develop more thoroughly a bit I've been working on.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
It was a great experience and Joanie was a fantastic instructor. Couldn't have asked for a better one. She was fun, supportive and helpful. Thank you!

Hey Shannon!  I wanted to say thanks for not only teaching me comedy, but also making it fun! I felt really comfortable and confident on stage, and I'm seriously considering pursuing comedy as my career choice, partly perhaps because of you.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

You Got me to go on stage. You taught me confidence. I now understand how to write a joke and how long my setups should be. Because of you, I was able to win a comedy contest!

Flappers changed my life. I am grateful that Flappers turned me into a comic, which has always been a dream of mine.

Hey Shannon,
 
Thanks so much for the opportunity to participate in your class yesterday. I told you already, and I'll tell you again (cause who doesn't like having their ego stroked by a stranger?), I signed up for the class because I saw a show you were hosting and I was impressed by your ability to not only be funny, but engage the crowd and improvise. I have only ever seen one other comedy show and it was at flappers as well so you very well may have hosted that one too, I don't know though, the clubs six drink minimum left the night a bit fuzzy. You guys only left me one line to tell you what I thought of the class and I write pretty big so I wasn't able to completely convey my thoughts. Mostly what I got out of the class was inspiration. Were I'm from it’s a lot of "Hey your funny. Now pick up your tool bags and get back to work". Never any "Hey, you know you can do something with that right? Now pick up your tool bags and get back to work". Out here being funny is a "talent" and after taking your class and listening to Joanie, Barbara, Dave, and yourself, I walked away (and kept walking for a while cause I lost my car in a parking garage) thinking "Wow, this is something people ACTUALLY do?”. That was probably the most helpful thing I got out of the class. Barbara was amazing! Her energy and enthusiasm was as contagious as her smile. Everyone was so great. I'm still coming down from the spiritual high. No, spiritual is not the name of a cannabis strand... :) 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

I can't tell you how I appreciate all you did for CJ. He is getting so much positive feedback from the showcase video! 

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Barbara,

I really enjoyed the class, and I feel specifically that I now have the "big picture" understanding of the college market that will allow me to proceed to the next level.

Hi!!

I just wanted to say that I had a blast in the V/O class!!  Mona and Ashley were incredible!!  Not only did they show us techniques that can be applied in their profession but showed us how these techniques can be applied to those of us who already do stand up.  Terrific class and the only complaint that I have is that the 3 hours went by way too quickly.  Thanks for the opportunity!!

Regards,

Bobby Chambers

5 years and still learning so much. I love Dave's class!

"Shannon is a freakin' awesome teacher. She gave great comments and feedback to every student at every class session. She was encouraging and continued to pull more from us. She gave clear homework assignments and was always available by one means or another, if we gad questions. I will definitely be taking another class or two at FU, and I hope I can have Shannon for at least the intermediate class. I have also seen Shannon perform on stage and she is a great example of practicing what she preaches."
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Thank you so much for the Intro to Comedy Intensive! What an inspiring day! I will be back for more as soon as I can figure out some financial strategies that would work for me. Really great class. Most helpful exercises, for me, were the "mapping" and the (terrifying) critique of our brave student. Seeing how people perceive us without knowing us was amazing. The BEST part was having so many teachers so we got all of your various perspectives of everything. If you happen to come across a silverish purple earring, I lost it. Cheap but sentimental. :-) Thank you again! Jenny Hale

"Shannon is amazing and such an incredible asset to the club!!"

Hi Barbara,

Thanks so much for the class.  Your class, and you yourself, were magnificent.   Had a great time and learned a lot.  I can't wait to attend more.   

Thanks again,

Billy Collins

Great experience in Joanie's class. Thank you!

Peter Charkalis's Late Night class was such a great class for me to take and couldn't have happened at a better time.  Shortly after that class, I was asked to submit to be the new line-writer for Southern California's Playlist 92.7.  It was weird and out of the blue (and I really didn't even think of that as a possibility of a job), but I had just learned how to write really concise and quick one-liner jokes from Peter's class.  So all I really had to do was throw something about traffic or listening to the radio into the punchline.  I wrote 7 lines/jokes for the submission and emailed them to Peter, who quickly responded with minor tweaks/edits that were extremely helpful.  And success story- I GOT THE GIG!  Flappers is freakin' changing my life!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"Shannon is awesome I look forward to my next classes I wish I could get there sooner . I love comedy and can't wait to get to advance!"
____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"Thank you Flappers especially Joanie for teaching me soo much and to Dave & Barb for giving me a place and opportunity to grow!!! Oh and Johnny Roque for showing me the difference between the demographics of Claremont and Burbank lol. Still so much to learn :-))"
