Standup Comedy Class

SCHEDULE of Standup Classes (Santa Cruz, CA)
Can Standup be taught?  You bring the raw material, we will help you with timing, attitude/persona, styles of comedy, paring down the words. 
In these experiential workshops in-class time will be spent writing and performing.  You perform the routines, we will offer constructive feedback.  Prepare to laugh. 
While there will be some in-class writing including collaborative comedy writing and standup writing exercises, the bulk of comedy writing and rehearsing will be done at home (or in diners, Starbucks and parking lots).
Last class is a show, either at class or in a comedy club.
Instructor Carol Roberts is a former standup comic in S.F., NYC, L.A.
As an outgrowth of our standup comedy workshops we are going to write together and come up with Letterman-Leno types of monologs and skits.  No experience necessary!  You may bring standup to work on.  In addition we will tackle topics in the news and popular culture.  We will create new material each week.
