  • Acting for Comedians with Denise Grayson - a Four week course
  • Stand-up comedy appears to be the most simplistic of all the arts. It’s in fact, puzzlingly difficult. It combines two elements, writing and the exposition of your words. In this masterclass you will get in contact with your body and voice. The connection with your own physicality is in fact the key to your connection with your audience. There’s just you. This class will help you tune your instrument. It will open you up and free your voice. Learned exercises, observations and repetition will enable you to feel at one with both your audience and yourself. You will acquire good habits. Denise works with each student individually. Students also learn from watching one another. For decades Denise has been helping performers elevate their work.About Denise GraysonDenise Grayson is a multi-disciplined actor/producer, and attorney, and founder of Denise Grayson Productions, where feature films in development include Walter Mosley’s sexistential novel, KILLING JOHNNY FRY, Rajiv Shah’s BLOOD AND THE RYE, and Christina Eliopoulos’ MOTHERLAND.

Though many of us think we are natural performers (certainly I did), there is so much to learn about performance, poise and being real on stage and speaking in front of groups.  She has helped my performance in myriad ways over these 7 years. I have now performed over 450 times at "The Strip" and clubs all over America, and been lucky enough to land 2 National commercials.  She is so helpful in so many ways as to our public and private performance. Working with her is an excellent investment. My most hardy endorsement.- Michael Rakosi, Stand-Up ComicMy background is in production and in 2012 I was selected by the American Film Institute to attend its Directing Workshop for Women. Denise was crucial during the entire process from pre-production to production of my DWW film. Analyzing the script and discussing the characters' motivations with Denise really enriched the process and increased my love for this art. Then it only got better when she visited the set and we were able to rehearse scenes with the actors. I am really looking forward to working with Denise on my future projects.- Juliana Penaranda-Loftus, Producer and Emerging DirectorDenise has brought out the best in me and allowed me to recognize my own strengths.   With her guidance I realized nothing is impossible. She has helped me succeed in both business and personal relationships and the best part is she didn’t direct change but rather helped me focus and realize I held the answer.  She is a gem.- Robert Jay Nemrow, Esq., AttorneyPolicies: Class is for 18+No Refunds, No Exchanges, No Cancellations (No semester roll-overs).We reserve the right to remove anyone from a course and refund their money at any time for any reason.Students who enroll in class are entitled to free open mics at West Side Comedy Club.Graduation shows are taped, students who bring at least four (4) people are will receive their tape for free, otherwise they are subject to a $25 tape fee.Please be sure to read through our FAQ page for additional policies.If you have any additional questions feel free to reach out to us using the contact form or by emailing [email protected]*scheduling subject to change
