Join the students of Aliya Brown’s Intro to Standup Class as they debut their brand new 5 minutes of Standup material!
This class is an introduction to standup comedy from both a creative and practical approach. Attendees will learn and apply the basics of joke construction, acquire useful tips for beginners, and receive individualized feedback with the goal of producing 5 minutes of material.
