This Stand-Up Comedy Class is designed to be one thing...FUN!
For anyone who has wanted to try stand-up comedy, or is currently pursuing performing stand-up here is a chance to develop fresh new comedic material. You will learn how to translate information from your daily life, and turn it into comedy magic in an atmosphere designed to encourage you every step of the way. The goal with this course is to create 5 minutes of original comedic material, and then perform live in front of family and friends.
I am there every step of the way to encourage you and give insight - from learning how to create jokes, conquering stage fright, and most of all having fun. In this process which may seem frightening it is nothing but rewarding.
Mike Parnon from the UNO Stand Up Comedy Course, taught me my first comedy class in 1999 which gave me great insight, and with that it has been a magical career since. Don't worry if the comedy road is not your career path, believe it or not, most of the participants of this class are from all work fields, education, sales, management, even politics!
About me: My career is Stand-Up Comedy. I currently work for Budd Friedman’s The Improv, and travel to Las Vegas to perform every few months. I also tour around this nation of ours performing, and all the while keeping my roots here in New Orleans. I have been selected as New Orleans Magazine’s 30 People to Watch, and in 2010 I was named a favorite at The Improv in Las Vegas. I also produce comedy shows in New Orleans through GroundCoverEntertainment.info
where we perform at Harrah’s New Orleans 3 times per year, as well as around the Gulf South. I have opened for Dennis Miller, and have had the opportunity to grace the stage with hundreds of the most talented comedians in the world. Stand-Up Comedy is my love, my passion, my LIFE! So let’s get laughing!
Included in your payment for this four week course will be a fact filled binder of information that will guide you through the class, a CD with comedic insight, guest speakers and then a Final Graduation Class Performance.
