In this course, students will work on perfecting their five-minute stand-up routines through repeated performances both in and out of the classroom and through classroom critiques and suggestions from the instructor, their peers, and guest lecturers who are professional comedians. The guest lecturers will share their writing process and insights into performing to give the students a varied and diverse perspective on comedy. Students will be expected to spend one evening a week honing their routines at a local open mic event. Those who complete the four-week course will then perform in a graduation May 18 at the Studio Theater.


Completion of the Center's Intro to Stand-Up Comedy class is a prerequisite for this class. A promo code is required on the following page. If you have previously taken the Center's Intro to Stand-Up Comedy class and do not have a promo code, email
