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 particular areas of study and advanced comedy techniques, as well as improving or expanding their existing comedy material and career. Students invited to join our Stand Up Level 3: Advanced class are expected to come to class each week with new material and sets to workshop. Stand Up Level 3: Advanced classes focus on refining existing material, fixing issues with structure and forcing the students to stay authentic and 'true to voice'. Advanced-level topics covered in this course will include:

- Refinement of lessons from Levels 1 and 2
- How authenticity and vulnerability in material affects a comedian's 'voice'
- The importance of staying 'in the moment'
- How to deal with hecklers and other problem scenarios
- Understanding 'the power of play' and getting away from the 'script'

Successful completion of this course will culminate in a stage performance in front of a live audience on one of our Flappers club stages! Additionally, Level 3 students are allowed to partake in a video review following their showcase, for an in-depth critique of their performance and identification of strengths and flaws to continue working on.

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: Our Stand Up Level 3 classes are intended for advanced level comedy students who have successfully completed Levels 1 and 2, and are available by invitation only; comedians wishing to apply for special consideration may be able to schedule an audition by emailing the Dean of Classes at
