Sunday April 7th, 2024 - 3:00PM
Comedy 101 for Teens! with Joe Matarese
F Comedy at WSCC, New York, NY

Are you interested in trying your hand at comedy? Are you looking for a creative release? Do you have something snarky to say but nowhere to say it? Then Comedy 101 for Teens is for you! 

This 6-week course will introduce you to the world of standup comedy and is an excellent opportunity for those looking to work on their confidence in public speaking. You’ll learn about stage presence, mic handling, the basics of joke structure, and comedy writing skills, leading you to kill your first 5-minute set. The class will conclude with a show at West Side Comedy Club, where students can get on stage and try out their newly minted set in front of a live audience. Everyone who performs will walk away with a high-def recording of their set to take home. 

Our instructors are working comics themselves with credits to their name; they can speak directly to the industry as it is today. 

At FUNY Standup, The Standup Comedy School, we are passionate about helping people find their funny. 

Please note this course is designed for High School Students (14 -18 years old)
