The Stand-Up Comedy class provides young actors with the training and basic performance skills to develop a five-minute stand up comedy routine over eight sessions in the classroom, culminating with two performances in a nightclub setting. These skills include writing techniques, a basic understanding of joke structure, timing and rhythm, stage persona, point of view, and character/persona development. Emphasis is on the differences and similarities between acting and stand-up performance. The goal is for each student to develop the necessary tools to create and hone their comedic skills to enhance their attributes as a well rounded performer.
Each student will perform their routine on the first evening for an audience of their peers and to a regular NY audience. Following the performance, Rick Crom will provide feedback and each student will work on their performance until the second date where they will perform their routine once again.
