The Stand Up Level 2: Intermediate course is intended for students looking to advance their education past the introductory lessons of Level 1, as well as comedians with prior experience looking to gain a deeper understanding of Flappers University's structure-based approach to stand-up comedy. Students will begin to explore the psychological factors that can determine the success of a joke, and focus on learning about building assumptions, styles of punchlines, and using advanced-level comedic tools like bridges and revelations. Intermediate-level topics covered in this course will include:

- Refinement of lessons from Level 1
- Deeper understanding of basic comedy structure, and how it is used to create surprise
- The importance of brevity and its effect on stand up material
- How to discover additional tags on existing material
- Pacing and the power of silence
- Acknowledging the environment to stay 'in the moment'
- 'Joke Doctoring' and refining your existing material

Successful completion of this course will culminate in a stage performance in front of a live audience on one of our Flappers club stages!

At Flappers University we believe that comedy is truly an art-form, a combination of raw talent and technique. Talent can be lost without technique, so we first teach joke structure and the basic language of comedy. We also believe that what makes a great comedian is being personal and authentic and, perhaps, a rule-breaker, so we provide a safe and fun environment where you can be just that: authentic, inspired and successful. Whether you are already a working comedian or looking to make it your profession, or simply need help with that next presentation or just want to come and have fun, we can help you find the path to funny.

PREREQUISITES: Completion of Stand Up Level 1: Beginning *OR* prior comedy experience is strongly recommended, but not required.
