Due to COVID-19, Spring in-class sections will be conducted online. Please contact your instructor for more information.
In this course, students will study and analyze stand-up comedy as a route to success in Film and Television. Students will learn about the history of stand up comedy and the comedians who parlayed success on the stage into success in television and films. Students will study the process of how comedians first created their material and honed/perfected it on stages around the world. Finally, students will mine their own lives for funny stories, creating original stand-up comedy routines (5 minutes), work-shopping them in class and eventually performing these routines on the Main Stage at Zanies Comedy Club. .
This course is repeatable.
