Our Stand Up Level 3: Advanced Studies courses are intended for students with a strong grasp of basic comedy technique and ample performing experience who are looking to focus their attention on one of four major areas of comedic study, with the intention of improving or expanding their existing comedy material and career. In our Stand Up Level 3: Presence class, students focus on becoming unencumbered by their 'script', identifying the 'power of play' to become more comfortable at getting out of their head and staying 'in the moment'. Students will attempt to learn how to manipulate an audience's energy levels to create a unique shared experience and find confidence in performing 'crowd work', talking to the audience with 'conversational comedy', outside of the comedian's 'planned' 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; this particular Level 3 class will ALSO include a video review of your performance after the showcase in the final week, to provide analysis for further study.

PREREQUISITES: Completion of Stand Up Level 2: Intermediate class with teacher recommendation for advancement is required; comedians wishing to apply for special consideration to move up early may do so by emailing the Dean of Classes at
